  • The maximum time given to complete a program is three years.

This entire course is carried out via Distance Learning (also known as correspondence learning). Distance learning is ideal if you need to adapt around work, family, or other commitments. It is also extremely beneficial should you simply wish to fast track your studies (and career) and not be locked into a timetable. Our course content and learning experience ensure that your course is relevant and interesting. Learning, tutorial assistance and assessments take place whenever and wherever you are in the country or world. It takes place at your own pace on your own terms to fit your lifestyle.

Career Prospects

A lot of inventions and innovations these days leave us in awe. From an elaborate architectural work to the newest advancements in technology, the human genius always finds a way to manifest itself. But who are the people who raise these masterful works from inception to finishing? With so many systems and processes to factor in with each and every project, business and government need capable individuals who have a clear-cut vision of the outcome of the project and the right know how to make the correct pieces come to together. Government reports note that managing projects is “an increasingly important responsibility for many workers, as more organizations use teams and project-based methods to get work done”. The Project Management profession provides vast opportunities across almost all major industries. It calls for individuals who have the right knowledge in handling valuable resources such as time, money, and manpower; ensuring that all three elements fuse well together to come up with projects which meet set objectives within set time frames. Industries most reliant on project managers include:

  • telecommunications
  • information technology
  • health
  • education
  • government (all levels)
  • media
  • marketing
  • building and many more

As a prized member of company’s structure, project managers get more preferential access to career growth opportunities and climbing the corporate up the ladder. You may already be a member of an industry and wish to transfer into and specialize in project management which would also be a sound move as you already posses knowledge on industry you work in.
