Are you interested in moving to the next level within your organisation?

Do you have the desire to manage successful large-scale projects or several projects simultaneously? Would you like to learn from working professionals in the field of project management, share best practice and discuss case studies from all over the world?

If the answer is “yes” to any or all of these questions, then an online masters in project management could provide you with the skills you need to further your career without having to take time out.

Here are four reasons why studying an MSc in Project Management online makes sense:

  1. Demand for project managers continues to rise
    In developed countries, there is an increase in the need for project practitioners who have the ability to think strategically when executing projects. According to the Project Management Institute, energy, healthcare, IT, finance, construction, aerospace and defence are facing differing economic outlooks, but they all have one thing in common: job opportunities for project practitioners.
  2. You can become part of a new generation of project managers
    The current shortage of project management graduates, an ageing workforce and a growing demand for the successful completion of projects all add up to a serious problem for organisations that are not actively developing talent ready to enter the field when the time is right. This is good news for project management graduates, who can capitalise on current openings.

    “I have been working as a materials co-ordinator for seven years but I always felt that I had knowledge gaps around proper planning and how to manage resources. I thought the MSc in Project Management would fill those gaps and in fact yes I was right.”

  3. You can learn to lead
    As well as learning to manage the full project life cycle – initiating, planning, executing, monitoring, controlling and closing projects – employers are also looking for skills in managing project quality, cost, risks, planning and co-ordination, and client and vendor relationships. Online programmes such as Roehampton Online’s MSc in Project Management meet the skill requirements vital in today’s competitive job market.

    “The programme modules are focused on practical subjects. They range from understanding team roles to understanding yourself. I am a manager. I understand team roles better because of the information shared in this course.”

  4. Learn online at a time that suits you
    So one of the main advantages of online learning is flexibility – but what does this mean?
    Online learning models differ from campus-based programmes, but in many cases the degrees earned are the same.

    At Roehampton Online, for example, each programme is divided into modules. Each module has 12 units that are essentially two-week study periods in which you complete an assignment in your own time. Between each module you also have a two-week break to get ready for your next module. Throughout your programme, you receive support from your faculty members and from your peers and student support advisors.
