Master of Project Leadership

The Master of Project Leadership (MPL) is a professional degree for experienced project managers and senior executives seeking to develop their critical complex thinking and communication skills required for successful leadership at an organisational level.

An innovative and challenging program, it will develop your strategic thinking capability and broaden traditional concepts of leadership, management, governance, risk, resilience and sustainability.

The MPL looks at the skills required to establish and tailor sophisticated interdependent project frameworks, as well as exploring the cutting-edge concepts of open systems innovation, dynamic social networks and design thinking.

Specifically, the MPL will broaden and strengthen the analytical skills necessary to articulate change and enable adaptation in today's fast-changing global, political, technological and information environments.

Through the application of a range of relevant models and theories, the MPL deepens your understanding of the dynamics of delivery, adaptation and change, and of managing the connected complexities of decision making and taking.
