Master of International Relations/ Master of Project Management

Program overview

In the globalised economy, learning ‘management by projects’ has become essential. Whether you’re working as a consultant or permanent staffer, tasks are increasingly delivered on a project basis by interdisciplinary teams headed by leaders who have expertise in their chosen field and a suite of people management, time management, design thinking and high-level communication skills. All of which is exactly why a postgraduate qualification in project management is the ideal extension to supercharge your Master of International Relations studies.

The benefit of tackling both degrees at the same time is the significant time and cost saving. Taken as stand-alone programs, the Master of International Relations would take 12 months to complete, and the Master of Project Management would take another 1 year 4 months. The double degree can be completed in just two years which is a saving of one semester and significant cost compared to two individual degrees.

Most importantly, having a dual International Relations and Project Management qualifications will help you stand out and significantly expand your career options.

  • "Bond University’s international relations program allows students to balance diplomatic experiences with international relations theory. Our programs follow an active learning approach, where students learn to develop key employability skills through real world simulations – enhancing their communication, presentation, negotiation, and research skills by dealing with historical and ongoing political affairs around the world."

  • Foreign Correspondendent

    I am passionate about geopolitics, diplomacy, and cultural differences. Those are topics I really enjoy reading about, learning about, so that's why I chose to study a Master of International Relations. It ended up perfectly matching with my position as Foreign Correspondent as I report about politics, economics, sports and culture in Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia. It helped me to understand and critically view many aspects of the countries I report about.
