Today, project management skills and abilities are in high demand in both private and public sectors. The result is a global shortage of project managers at all levels in every field such as construction, information technology, finance, health care and related industries, property development and government. The Graduate Diploma in Project Management provides graduates with the theoretical foundation necessary to take advantage of the exciting opportunities available in this fast growing profession, both in Australia and overseas. Students may articulate to a Master of Project Management qualification. Combined degrees are also available.
The Graduate Diploma in Project Management is accredited by the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM). Bond University is a member of the Global Alliance for Project Performance Standards (GAPPS).

To support students during the economic crisis created by the current pandemic, financial aid will be provided to students in Semester 2 in 2020. This is in the form of a one-off tuition fee relief, which will be a 20% reduction in Semester 2 tuition fees. For more information, see the Frequently Asked Questions.
When considering the fees associated with your studies, keep in mind that Bond’s accelerated schedule means you can finish your degree sooner and be out in the workforce up to a year earlier than if you went to another university.
This time saving also represents a substantial reduction in accommodation and living costs, plus a full year of extra earnings.
