Major in Project and Programme Management
This specialisation, taught entirely in English, is devoted to new approaches to management and leadership. It develops participants’ analytical skills as well as their sense of initiative and the agile mind-set essential for leading project-based organisations. Managers in such organisations have to reason in terms of results-based performance; they must create an environment that nurtures continuously successful projects; this requires exemplary piloting of costs, effective project governance and management of risks resulting in new potentially profitable opportunities. The success of such organisations lies in their capacity to respond to – or even to go beyond – clients’ expectations on all projects undertaken on their behalf.
