Introduction

Develop the professional expertise needed to plan, develop, manage and deliver complex projects in any industry with our Association for Project Management (APM) accredited Masters degree. Prepare to start or advance your project management career by studying in Chelmsford or online.

Already have an ARU degree? You may be eligible for our Alumni Scholarship for students starting postgraduate courses.

Our MSc Project Management takes a generic approach to project management. It provides the opportunity for you to develop a comprehensive understanding of the role of the project manager and a broad understanding of the management processes and practices involved in the development and operation of projects from inception to completion.

You will develop the knowledge and applicational skills required to manage projects in a wide range of organisations that use projects.

Uniquely our MSc Project Management recognises that management is an individual and personal activity; every manager manages in their own way. Consequently, the course enables you to develop your own unique approach to managing projects, based on good general management and specialist project management skills.
