The MSc Strategic Project Management is an established and highly regarded programme at Heriot-Watt University. By undertaking the programme students are enabled to develop skills in strategic thinking, innovation, leadership, business models, best practices and the latest research in project and programme management. This Master’s degree differentiates itself from other project management programmes by providing greater emphasis on strategically managing a portfolio of projects to deliver organisational goals.
It is designed to prepare graduates to be future leaders in the global project-based environment. By developing knowledge and skills in both business strategy and project management, our graduates are unique, valuable and attractive to all types of organisations and industry sectors.
The programme has a strong focus on the strategic alignment of projects to ensure that projects deliver organisational values and benefits. This encompasses both project management as a process to deliver end products, and change management as a process of capturing the rational and emotional buy-in of those affected by change, to ensure its success.
Teaching and Assessment
Our students experience a stimulating teaching environment which blends conventional lectures and tutorials with online material in our Virtual Learning Environment. Programmes are regularly reviewed by research-active staff in Edinburgh, Dubai and Malaysia to ensure that the learning material is relevant and current.
Assessment is through a balance of examinations, coursework and a dissertation.
Aligned to PMI's Body of Knowledge, the programme is accredited by PMI's Global Accreditation Centre, which applies to all three of the University's global campuses. The accreditation would mean that graduates of the programme are exempted from 40 hours of training required for one to take up their PMP certification.
