Who should study this programme?
This is a new programme commencing in September 2018. The programme has been designed by a team of Project Management experts to meet the current and future needs of organisations in dealing with Project, Programme and Portfolio management initiatives.
The programme is suited to high-potential applicants from all industry sectors who wish to develop their capabilities in the field of project management. The programme is open to experienced project managers who will normally have a minimum of five years professional work experience in project management or a related discipline.

The modules are closely aligned to internationally recognised certifications including CAPM®, PMP®, Microsoft Project Exam 74-343, Prince2 and Scrum Master Certified (SMC). It consists of three taught semesters and an individual consultancy project which is normally undertaken in each participant's own company.
This programme is delivered at our city centre campus in central Dublin. It is designed to allow busy professionals to combine work and study through its block delivery format normally over three days per month.
