University of Essex Online today announces the launch of a brand-new MSc Project Management. This programme is 100% online and part-time and will be validated by the University of Essex.

This advanced course introduces the complexities of modern business, covering a wide range of challenging and thought-provoking topics, and ensuring that students stand out from the crowd in today’s global and highly competitive environment.

Developed and taught by subject experts, this 100% inter-disciplinary and integrative programme will also teach students how to examine and appraise research methods and technological skills in making effective and ethical management decisions, while critically analysing in-depth complex managerial issues both systematically and innovatively.

David Dixon, Academic Director for University of Essex Online said: “The launch of our brand-new MSc Project Management course gives both our current undergraduate students and new students the opportunity to progress onto a world-class cutting edge degree. Student will develop current thinking across a range of issues relevant to project management and provide a theoretical and practical exploration of the factors required for effective project management.
