Project management insights
Project management is a diverse profession. The skills you pick up when you study project management can be applied to new programs, product launches, system changes and other projects across all kinds of industries. That’s just part of what makes project management such an exciting career opportunity today. After all, the stats show that most of us switch jobs about every three years. But that doesn’t have to mean starting from scratch every time. Even if your industry of choice is facing a lot of change and challenges thanks to technology, cultural change, and economic conditions.
Want to have a real impact in your organisation, and enjoy a bit of variety at the same time? Project management is a great way for you to apply the expertise you’ve worked so hard to develop. In fact, many project management students are degree-qualified professionals in their fields.
