The Innovation of Things
Introducing Master of Project Innovation / Master of Project Management (MPI+MPM)
The world of project management is changing. Projects and programs are increasingly creative in nature, embedding innovative thinking, and dealing with complex business environments. The parallel processes of innovation management and project management need to interact, new ways of working need to be applied where time is of the essence, and the benefits of design thinking within a diverse team environment must be realised.
Bond University’s Master of Project Innovation / Master of Project Management explores emergent ideas and directions and expands them further in time. The program is delivered in collaboration with Bond Business School and Transformer – an Australian-first entrepreneurship program offered to all Bond students. This means you’ll have the opportunity to study subjects that will strengthen not only your project management knowledge but also your business and entrepreneurship skills to better position you as an innovator and leader.
- Recognised and accredited by PMI, AIPM and RICS
- International study tour an inclusive and core component
- Work experience opportunities within the University’s Transformer initiative
- Digital micro-credentials for up to six career specialisations
