Strategic Project Management Implementation

POSTGRADUATE SPECIALISATION

Projects are conceptualised as drivers for organisational change, yet in many cases principles of change management are often overlooked in the planning and initiation of a project. A postgraduate specialisation in strategic project management implementation will provide you with advanced skills in order to implement change management techniques, communications and training. You may engage in areas of study including strategic delivery of change, project innovation management and quantitative methods.

Study plan

To meet requirements for the strategic project management implementation specialisation a candidate will complete a minimum 12 credit points of strategic project management implementation specialisation units, including PMGT5876 Strategic Delivery of Change.

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.
