"You’ll learn cultural intelligence. You meet people from different countries, different backgrounds and work together in a team. Because everything is becoming so international, it's important for project managers to have these cultural intelligence skills. "

How much time will it take?

You’ll need to dedicate 25 hours per week to your studies during the 10 weeks that form each 20-credit module.

Get in touch with us for more information on the course timeline, and details about your study time commitment.

How we assess you

We use a combination of formative and summative assessments throughout your course.

Formative assessments include tutor feedback on your presentations and other projects. This type of assessment will help you learn and develop, but it doesn’t contribute towards your final mark.

Summative assessments usually take place through assessed practical and written coursework, such as projects, presentations, essays, case studies, plans and strategies. You’ll get feedback from your tutor as part of these assessments.

We’re committed to inclusivity and will reflect that in our assessment strategies, so that no one is at a disadvantage.
