The blurring of boundaries between the built environment disciplines is occurring as a response to client demand for more complex designs involving specialist knowledge. The combined Master of Sustainable Environments/ Master of Project Management is designed to support this international trend and to deliver projects that ultimately reflect longevity. At Bond, graduates are equipped with specialist knowledge in urban design and planning, and sustainable practices.
Internationally recognised qualification
The Master of Sustainable Environments and Planning is accredited by RICS and PIA (Planning Institute of Australia). The Master of Project Management is accredited by RICS, PMI and AIPM. Completion of the combined degree satisfies the accreditation requirements of both single degrees.
IMPORTANT: Effective June 2020, graduates of GAC-accredited programs will be awarded a substantial reduction in the experience requirement for all PMI certifications.

The combined Masters degree in Sustainable Environments and Planning and Project Management enables students interested in being an environmental planner to gain specialised knowledge related to urban design and planning and its influence on the natural environment. Sustainable development is an important contemporary pursuit in the context of human-induced climate change. It is also an international endeavour, where finite resources are a limit to the growth of human settlements worldwide. Therefore, a combined understanding of the environmental planning process together with the generic principles of successful management of scope, time, cost, risk, human resources, quality, procurement, stakeholders and environmental impact, and their balanced integration, is most valuable. Environmental planners may be involved in design, planning, construction and operation of our built environment within the confines of acceptable habitat impact. Graduates of this degree are internationally recognised by the Project Management Institute (PMI). The program is also accredited by the Planning Institute of Australia (PIA). Show less

Why the world needs more project managers
By 2027, the world will need 88.7 million project managers. PMI projects a potential loss of 27.9 billion US dollars across 11 countries if more skilled project managers do not join the workforce.
Professor Patching explains, the skills of project managers have changed in previous years and Bond’s undergraduate and postgraduate project management degrees are designed to equip graduates with the skills they need for the future role of the project manager.
