According to Tim Tews, Master of Project Management/Master of Business Administration

Does a trip like this help cement what you’ve learnt in Project Management? How so?

I am convinced that the Dubai Study Tour helped me gain a better understanding of the various aspects of project management. Talking to people who have been managing projects for years and being able to learn from their experience is an infinitely valuable experience that no textbook in the world can offer. 

It was an incredible experience to walk through Dubai with a critical eye and question why projects were being managed the way they were and discover what I could learn from these approaches. I thought about what I might have done differently and discussed these opinions with our hosts, professor, and other participants. This was one of the best ways to broaden my perspective on project management. Also, it was absorbing to see how the tools and techniques we learn during our lectures find application in the reality.  

What was the defining moment of the trip?

Our visit on Day 1 to the Executive Council of Dubai Government was for me the most defining moment of the trip in many ways.

First, we were finally there, our group of international students at a very different place far away from the lecture room. We did not exactly know what to expect, but we have been welcomed with a such a warm hospitality that continued during the entire trip. At this visit, we did not only learn about how Dubai manages its government projects but also how important and powerful a vision can be to achieve something outstanding. Furthermore, this visit changed a lot of my perceptions I had previous to this trip of the role of women in Dubai. Hasna was an excellent discussion partner and talking to her gave me the opportunity to gain so many valuable insights from her experience.

What was your biggest learning or takeaway from this trip (in relation to your degree)?

My biggest takeaway from this trip is that it’s important to understand the different tools and techniques existing in all the knowledge areas of project management. However, to make a project become  successful, it comes down to managing people. The management of people will influence a project's success in many ways. Forming the right project team, communicating and involving the stakeholders, delivering a vision not only to the project teams but also to the client. These are only a few examples of the possible influences. Furthermore, we discussed the importance of creating value. Often project management requires a lot of additional work in the eyes of others. However, it is our responsibility as future project managers to show the client and our team how the right management of projects and create additional and unique value.
