Project management is now an integral part of senior management positions as a process of facilitating change or adding value to an organisation. Project management is the discipline of organising and managing the resources of a project from planning to completion within a series of constraints such as time, cost and scope to meet predefined objectives. As a project is a one-off endeavour that is undertaken for a specific reason, and with strictly defined resources, the process of project management requires specific business skills.
USQ's Faculty of Business and Law offers a variety of programs and courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
Our postgraduate programs in project management will provide the skills and knowledge to enable you to be capable of managing projects either as a senior team leader, a project manager or project director. Core studies in the program include project scheduling and time management, cost management, human resources management, quality management, procurement management, communications management and risk management. Graduates will develop generic skills in relation to planning, defining and implementing projects, and one of the options includes the study of logistics management.
The Project Management programs and courses are registered with the Project Management Institute (PMI) as a Global Registered Education Provider (REP). A study of project management at USQ earns professional development units towards Project Management Professional (PMP) status with the PMI.
USQ is also endorsed by the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) as a National Course Provider for project management education, and is the only national provider of a Master's degree in Project Management.
A study in project management provides career opportunities for more challenging management positions across a wide range of industries including business, health, construction, engineering, defence, events management, science, marketing, human resources management and education. The university also provides job searching and career planning advice for students who are looking for a job in their field.
