International Master in Project Management (in conjunction with Politecnico di Milano)

University of Strathclyde


The International Master Project Management (iMPM) is suitable for both recent graduates and those already in the workplace. It offers a balanced programme of professional training at postgraduate level.

The course explores the most recent approaches in project management with a cross-sectorial and intercultural perspective that focuses on managerial, behavioural and technical competencies.

You'll look at the strategic and holistic demands of modern projects in contemporary organisations and gain knowledge in an emerging field that combines: project management as a process to deliver complex change; strategic management as a process for formulating and implementing organisational strategy; the development of transferable skills. Particularly teamwork, leadership, communication, negotiation, conflict resolution and presentation for employment.

The course is entirely taught in English and has a duration of 18 months. The first semester is held at MiP, Milan and the second at Strathclyde, Glasgow, plus final project work/research thesis.

You'll spend approximately five months in Italy and the UK. The other eight months for the final project work can be in Italy, UK or another international location. The decision depends on your interests and the opportunities available.
