To cater for busy work schedules, UTS delivers classes in an intensive block mode. This creates an immersive experience where students work with their peers in a team-based, simulated project environment. Students also gain practical experience through working on real-life projects, in the classroom, on site or using computer simulations. For example, students have recently developed project plans for the Jack Thompson Foundation, Complimentary Health Care Council of Australia (CHC) and a number of industry associations. UTS academics are at the forefront of project management research internationally. This breadth of knowledge ensures that students have access to leading-edge thinking applied in both project-specific and organisational contexts. Teaching staff also includes specialist guest lecturers from UTS and institutions and organisations in Australia and overseas. Graduates possess a detailed understanding of how project management directly improves business productivity and profitability. They are able to deliver projects that help organisations achieve their strategic objectives.
Successful graduates of the course can: select and critically apply relevant theory to practice develop and apply appropriate project management methodologies to suit different project and organisational contexts demonstrate application of reflective practice communicate in a variety of forms across culturally diverse project and organisational contexts demonstrate the capacity to take a leadership role in project, program and portfolio management demonstrate advanced-level skills in managing relationships between key stakeholders in a variety of contexts both in Australia and internationally exhibit an understanding of the application of ethical practice to project governance in a variety of settings both in Australia and internationally select and apply creative problem-solving skills to all phases of the project life cycle apply critical thinking, analytical and research skills to a range of project and program management contexts understand, select from and apply a range of systems thinking approaches to a variety of project and organisational contexts.
