International Project Management


Organisations are increasingly becoming widely distributed. Geographically distributed project management can become challenging due to time, cross national policy and management of tasks and teams that are geographically and time distant.
A postgraduate specialisation in international project management will provide project managers with a deeper understanding of the management challenges related to globally distributed organisations and the use of appropriate technology infrastructure to support these international project teams. You may engage in areas of study including global project management, international engineering management and operations, and statistical methods in project management.

Study plan

To meet requirements for the international project management specialisation a candidate will complete a minimum 12 credit points of international project management specialisation units, including PMGT5888 Global Project Management.

Capstone specialisation

A capstone experience comprises one or more units of study designed by the faculty to provide you with an opportunity to draw together the learning that has taken place during the award, synthesise this with your prior learning and experience, and draw conclusions that will form the basis for further investigation, and intellectual and/or professional growth.

Eligible candidates complete either an indistrial project, or a project management thesis as part of the research pathway.

In the industrial project, students apply all skills acquired in the course of study to successfully initiate, plan, execute, control and close a project. Working as part of a team on a simulated four-month, mid-sized, high-priority project, students are responsible for developing the key project management deliverables.

In the project management thesis, students work in industry for 12 weeks and engage full-time on a project at an industrial site. Students prepare and present a detailed technical report on their work.

Graduate opportunities

Master of Project Management graduates may work in various positions including senior project manager, program director, and chief project officer roles. They may work locally and internationally, in a wide range of areas including mining, manufacturing, water, automotive industry, structural industry, IT industry, finance, management and environmental consultancy.
