Subject outline

In International Project Management, you will be introduced to the differences between and the techniques involved in managing domestic and international projects (and the framework to manage an international project). Working with case studies and real-life examples, you will explore how cultural and social differences, languages, legal and regulatory requirements, technologies, infrastructure and time zone differences affect the different elements of the project management framework, and therefore the execution of international projects. Working independently and collaborating with other students where possible, you will learn about the application of the Project Management Book of Reference [PMBOK] framework in international project management.
