Diploma in Project Management

Project management is a field which can be of enormous value to many different types of managers, businessmen, administrators, executives and entrepreneurs. Many types of people in many different fields who may not be trained professional project managers will at some time need to manage at least one project. Projects can be as diverse as setting up a market research project, arranging an event, implementing a new shipping route, relocating a company, choosing and installing a complex new computer system, a building project or running a campaign.

Most new ventures can benefit enormously from proven project management ideas and methods; it is not only large types of industrial projects that need careful organization, planning and control. However, not everyone called upon to manage a project is trained as a specialist project manager, and few people have the time or the need to study to become a career project manager. This Program is intended to assist managers of all kinds of occasional projects, people who need a practical introduction to project management, and those looking for careers in the field.
