As a Project Management (PM) MSc student, you have developed your understanding of the fundamental areas of PM through your two compulsory modules in the first semester: i.e. MANG6310 and MANG6311 and are learning more through MANG6312 and MANG6143 in second semester. Now, you should have a clearer idea of whether you would like to be a project professional (e.g., project analyst, planner, coordinator, …); a project manager, leader, executive or alternatively use your gained PM knowledge as a skill set in another profession (e.g., in marketing, finance, …) and/or for launching your own business. You should have also developed a good appreciation of the areas you are more interested in (e.g., planning or leading a project) or like to focus in your future career.
This module provides an opportunity for you to extend your PM knowledge by learning a wider range of concepts, tools and techniques for other PM areas. It could be of interest to all PM students, though perhaps more essential if you would like to work in project field and more specially in roles such as project manager, project executive or project consultant in contemporary project-based environments.
