Graduate Certificate in Project Management
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.
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.
