Description

The University International Master in Project Management comes from the collaboration with the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, with the aim to propose a training programme able to understand the ongoing evolution in the project management sector. In last years, indeed, it is possible to see the application of the typical methods of project management in almost all product sectors, thanks to the development of adaptive approaches that are working together and next to predictive ones, that are the traditional approached of contexts that have seen the birth of project management. In last years, the outstanding progress in the field of information systems is creating in companies the need to manage simultaneously, and in an increasingly effective and efficient way, a portfolio of projects in continuous evolution but which, even if of limited size, can have a big impact on the business strategy.
