The Master of Project Management is designed to provide students with expertise in project management across a range of industries.

Units cover a range of practical contexts across the areas of entrepreneurship, management and leadership. The course addresses managing project teams, human resource management, change management, budgets and organisational behaviour. Students also develop problem-solving skills and learn how to establish and communicate innovative solutions to a range of audiences. They become equipped to create and communicate professional project plans that address complex business problems, support organisational change and respond to ethical issues. Students select a specialisation from options including information systems and risk management. The Master of Project Management is part of a nested suite of programs, which includes the Graduate Certificate of Project Management and the Graduate Diploma of Project Management.

Beyond that, we prioritise your learning experience above all else. Swinburne was ranked in the top three in Victoria for student satisfaction, outstripping the national average (QILT Student Experience Survey 2016). 

With that goal in mind, we recently launched the Bachelor of Engineering Practice – Australia’s first engineering degree that uses project-based learning, while eliminating lectures and exams. And that’s just for a start.
