Purpose of the Program

Program Purpose Statement

The Master of Project Management will develop your specialised theoretical knowledge and technical skills in project management. The courses in this program have been designed to enable you to develop and apply your advanced and specialised knowledge to a range of project management organisations and contexts. You will be able to work in project based organisations including organisations that operate in project based sectors such as construction, architecture, engineering, information technology, government and non government and events management. Further, you will also be equipped to provide expert and specialised project management in organisations that manage by projects such as retail, education, finance and manufacturing. 

This program replicates industry and professional practice contexts and will equip you to work independently and effectively in multi disciplinary teams to achieve expert project and portfolio management. In doing so, you will develop your expert knowledge of specialised areas within project management including procurement, client management, entrepreneurship, planning and scheduling. 

This program emphasises the application of theoretical knowledge to practice and will develop your capacity to respond to current and emerging industry issues and trends. You will critically engage with project management theory and best practice principles, and evaluate and implement project management strategies as appropriate to the industry and organisational context. 

Upon successful completion of this program you will be a professional practitioner with high level specialised knowledge of the project management field. You will be able to assess and circumvent project risk, and critically analyse and respond to organisational issues and imperatives, and to diverse client needs. You will confidently lead others and provide expert and strategic advice to meet project deliverables and optimise project outcomes and success. You will be highly adept and experienced in collaborating with diverse project stakeholders and be able to research and interpret new developments to inform your expert advice and decision making. In preparation for professional and leadership roles in a variety of project management organisational contexts and industries, including small and large scale organisations, you will be able to perform a broad range of roles that project management entails, ranging from working on project teams to leading them. 

As a graduate of this program, you will be able to apply your specialised knowledge, research and technical skills to diverse industry sectors including construction, property and events management. Your highly developed research skills will enable you to research new developments as you address industry issues and problems. 

A capstone experience is offered through the courses Industry Project Investigation and Research Investigation (2). Through an individually negotiated professional practice  or scholarly research project, you will integrate and synthesise your knowledge, connect theory to practice as well as demonstrate your holistic achievement of the program learning outcomes. 

You will gain skills in local and global contexts for research and life-long learning to enable you to confidently contribute to a profession that is always evolving. 

Successful completion of this program provides a pathway into a PhD. Upon successful completion of this program you may also be eligible to undertake further studies in related programs at RMIT University.
