Course overview

One of the effects of globalization and the development of new technologies is the increase in competition. Both individual professionals and businesses, regardless of their size must adapt and prepare for the challenges that lie ahead.

The future of both public and private organizations involves objective-driven operations, process administration and project management in which a leader´s strength lies. All of this can open a huge array of professional opportunities, which we can help students attain.

Successful management involves the effective handling of projects with different orders of magnitude, technical complexity, limited budgets and turnaround times which can only be efficiently tackled by highly skilled professionals.

Training the best Project Managers

For the last 16 years, we have been successfully training executives in project, program and portfolio management. The Project Management Master (MA) has overseen the formation of project managers who have become efficient in succeeding in business and in their organizations in which they work.

We have pioneered Project Management in Europe through this Master in Project Management. By cooperating with three of the Spanish PMI Chapters: Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia. The program has championed the establishment of Project Management in Europe and has become the most important Project management reference in Latin America.

Our Project Management (MA) applies the best practices in the field, and is built on fundamental international standards: PMP-PMI + Prince2 + ISO + IPMA +Scrum + Kanban, etc. We count among our ranks some of the best internationally recognized Project Managers who will guide students in obtaining official certifications to these levels.

Principal objectives of this MA

The student will be fully prepared to successfully sit for the most important Project Management exams: PMI, PRINCE2, IPMA, ITIL, ISO 21500, etc. This MA will raise your professional profile as a Project Manager, positioning you favorably as a recruitment prospect.

Each student will learn how to manage projects in compliance with internationally accepted and recognized standards. Which will not only garner one with self-confidence but will also encourage others to entrust you with their projects.

We will provide you with essential resources of information and expose you to a network of connections that will benefit you for the rest of your professional career. Also you will come into contact with the most relevant international professional associations and will benefit from liaising with teachers and fellow students.

The student will develop the management skills essential to your profile. Learning how to negotiate, buy, sell, communicate, lead and delegate at an international level will be core skills developed during the program.

The student will learn how to expertly apply the most popular Agile methodologies (Agile, Scrum, Kanban, …). Allowing you to develop as the skills in becoming a highly versatile and robust Project Manager. You will learn to effectively implement standards such as PMP, Prince2 and ISO.

As a part of the Executive program and included in its cost, a student can elect to follow a one year language course (approximately 1,000 hours per language) in English, French, German, Italian or Chinese. The student can decide to study two, three or even all of the available languages. The Executive program also includes the completion of a Project of a student’s own creation, which will have the continuous backing and guidance of a tutor. This will enable you to manage projects whilst adhering to the highest standards of quality and excellence. Subsequently the student will graduate from the course with a project that is ready for you or a possible future employment implementation.

The networking and additional knowledge acquired from the two weeks imparted in Madrid, Spain (optional non-compulsory sessions, included within the Executive Program) will provide you with an unforgettable experience and a firm platform on which to base current and, more importantly future projects management practices.

Who will benefit from the course?

The Project Management MA has a history which spans over sixteen years covering fifty three editions. It was originally aimed at students with a minimum of three of Project Management experience. The students who has successfully completed this MA have enriched their CVs and professional careers by going on to become key players in Project Management at an international level.

From the 53rd edition, and through popular demand, we have opened our course to students that do not hold relevant professional experience in this field. This in turn has leadto the creation of specific groups who wish to enter the Project Management field for the very first time.
Both profiles are independent from one another with each having their own core set of activities.

This master program will benefit:

Professionals with previous experience in Project Management

Professionals without previous experience in Project Management
