Be an agent for change
Projects are vehicles for change. Organisations are increasingly becoming project-orientated and are seeking creative ‘can-do’ graduates with skills in communication, leadership, team management, change management, and process improvement. Our Bachelor of Project Management provides graduates who can find work in any industry sector, and for the first time in Queensland, provides a direct career path from school to professional certification as a project manager.
While most project management degrees worldwide are offered at the postgraduate level, there is now evidence that undergraduate study options are viable and provide a direct career path to the discipline for school leavers. In today’s competitive environment, organisations are increasingly becoming result-oriented and are improving their working environment and culture. They encourage employees to learn from their experiences and share them through a corporate knowledge base so that others can benefit from their lessons learned. These are the characteristics of a projectised organisation, which means there is a strong tendency to manage via projects rather than functional departments.
To be successful, a projectised organisation has to be dynamic and adaptive and integrate business and project management skills. The design of an undergraduate degree provides more space to explore the role of the project manager in modern projectised environments across all industries. Our Bachelor of Project Management focuses on projectised decision-making. The foundation subjects in Year 1 are designed to enable projectised thinking to organisational practice in Year 2.
