Graduate Certificate in Project Management

Scale up

Project management is about delivering successful results for business, government and the community. It requires passion, resolve and vision. This 6-month program will set you up to manage projects at whole new scales and levels of complexity.

What will you do?

Our Graduate Certificate in Project Management places a strong emphasis on holistic and systems-based project management. You will:

  • learn scalable project management concepts, methodologies and tools
  • build your understandings around world-leading practices (PMBOK® Guide and PRINCE2™)*
  • confidently apply your learning to meet professional and organisational goals
  • develop the leadership skills required for large-scale projects.
Where could it take you?

You could organise major sporting events or coordinate living arts festivals. You might manage megaprojects in healthcare, science, manufacturing, catering, entertainment or the defence sector. Perhaps you’ll head a marketing team in Silicon Valley or oversee the development of a multi-storey tower in Dubai. The graduate certificate can also lead into our graduate diploma and master in project management.
