The combined Masters degree in Communications and Project Management enables students interested in a career in corporate communications, public relations and strategic and cultural communication to acquire expertise in the planning, implementation and management of projects and programs. The addition of project and program management skills enables graduates to access more strategic positions in their organisation and to be responsible for overseeing new initiatives involving the management of scope, time, cost and risk. Communications is also a key competency of project and program management, and it is therefore possible that students pursuing a project management career might wish to obtain a combined degree with communication. Students graduate with a Master of Communication and a Master of Project Management upon completion. Graduates of this combined degree are internationally recognised by the Project Management Institute (PMI). Show less
