How You Study

The MSc Management with Project Management has been designed to equip you with all the necessary skills and knowledge to design, plan, and execute projects successfully. The programme brings together relevant contemporary academic theories and research with practical understanding of project management within organisations. This will be developed by enabling students to share knowledge, relate this to theories developed from relevant research, and learning by practical application. Through the development of an integrated and critically aware understanding of management in the context of contemporary business issues, the programme involves students in a demanding process of personal and professional development.

Our focus on the international dimensions of business and management and project management reflects the global environment in which organisations increasingly function. This global mindset is realised in our international faculty and student community. Our academics and students are drawn from all over the world, and bring with them unique experiences and perspectives which can enrich students’ learning.

All students will study the following taught modules:

Organisational Psychology
Leadership Development
International Marketing Planning
Financial Analysis, Appraisal and Decision-Making
Project Planning and Management
Strategy in Context
Delivering Projects, Programmes and Portfolios
Global Project Teams
Management of Project and Contract Risk

Students can then progress to complete the compulsory final project. It may take a variety of potential formats, including an independent research project, design of a new enterprise, a work-based project, or a consultancy project.

Contact Hours and Independent Study

Each module typically consists of three weekly teaching hours over a teaching term. Students will normally study four modules per term and therefore 12 hours per week. Please note, irrespective of whether students are full-time or part-time, their hours of study may vary from term to term and can be spread throughout the week.

Students planning to study the degree on a part-time basis, will be studying two modules per term with six hours of contact time on a weekly basis.

Postgraduate level study involves a significant proportion of independent study, exploring the material covered in lectures and seminars. As a general guide, for every hour in class, students are expected to spend at least three to four hours in independent study.

Although a proportion of the contact time will be spent in teaching, emphasis will also be placed upon the use of the student group as a resource for learning. The style of teaching will vary to reflect individual module objectives. The modules utilise methods of teaching and learning which are appropriate to postgraduate level study and effective collaborative learning such as debates, presentations, and report writing. There will also be group discussions of practical situations and problems, making an extensive use of case studies in national and international contexts, simulation materials and, where relevant, students’ own experiences.

An Introduction to Your Modules

Module Overview

A key role in project management relates to the delivery of successful projects, programmes and portfolios. This involves the use of varied techniques to ensure a timely and effective implementation of project plans. The topics covered include project portfolios and programmes, governance, project appraisal and selection, value management as well as some methodologies alternative to the traditional project management.

Module Overview

The module aims to develop the student's ability to critically analyse the financial statements for single and group companies, understanding how the financial statements are prepared, considering compliance with legal and regulatory requirements and the relevant International Accounting Standards. Students taking the module will examine both financial and non-financial matters that affect a business on a day to day basis and develop proactive ideas to solve these issues. The module can help to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to understand corporate financial performance and the relevance of accounting information, including the implications for the organisation, stakeholders, and for effective corporate governance.

Module Overview

Global projects present more problems and carry much greater risk than domestic, one-country projects. Various challenges usually include: interpersonal relations in a dispersed team and with stakeholders, language barriers, work tracking and control, different time zones, local regulations, politics and so forth. Given the ever-growing ubiquity of such undertakings, there is a drastic need for project managers who are able to appreciate and overcome the above practical challenges in order to deliver their projects on time, within budget and with all the benefits initially planned. This module aims to provide students with the skills to be effective when working as part of a global project team. The module is specifically designed to provide an awareness of how technology affects communication and collaboration in organisations. Students will be given the opportunity to work as part of a small team on a group project, allowing them to experience first-hand the challenges related to dispersed working and technology-mediated communication and to develop practical strategies for effective dispersed collaboration. Students will be required to evaluate their individual and team performance on the project and to reflect on their own leadership, teamwork and project management skills.

Module Overview

The business world never stands still; technologies and the move towards a more global economy are creating opportunities that organisations must embrace to maintain their competitive edge. Never before have global events and innovations had greater impact on local markets. Businesses now compete on a global stage where marketers can do so much more with small budgets, ultimately shrinking the historic chasm between SMEs and large enterprises. Creative marketing that grabs the attention of the ever demanding changing needs of the consumer takes careful planning. This module can help to provide students with the fundamental building blocks to manage an organisation’s marketing function. By establishing an organisation’s current market position, unpacking their value offering to consumers, and formulating a plan to meet strategic marketing objectives, the marketing planning process provides a creative framework to drive organisational success.

Module Overview

This module is designed to provide students with a conceptual and theoretical background in leadership, and an opportunity to develop leadership competencies in themselves and others. It covers topics such as leadership style, followership, ethical and responsible leadership, gender and leadership, and cross-cultural leadership. Over the course of this module, students are able to gain an understanding and appreciation of the impact interpersonal skills have on leadership effectiveness. This module has an applied focus and requires students to reflect on and apply theories and techniques to their personal real-world context in order to enhance their leadership practice. The module is delivered through workshops and an activity-based residential trip, which allows students to practice and receive feedback on their leadership skills in an engaging environment outside of the traditional classroom setting. Please note: our ability to undertake an off-campus residential is dependent on government guidance at the time with regard to travel and social-distancing. An appropriate alternative experience will be provided in the event that the residential cannot take place.

Module Overview

The implementation of any project is closely associated with risks, resulting from uncertainty within which it runs. Risks can arise during any project’s life-cycle phase, both from project executors (internal risks) and external actions (for instance, governmental activities or natural disasters). Risk cannot be eliminated, hence should be managed in the most time- and cost-effective way possible. To this end, a number of project risk management strategies are available, e.g. mitigation or contingency planning. However, the residual risk may still be present and can be dealt with using contracts, in order to transfer, pool or share the identified risks. Contract management is an extremely critical element of the procurement process as it enables a set of contract requirements to be controlled throughout the project as well as a clear allocation of risk to reduce the liability exposure and possibility of disputes, when employing contractors, subcontractors and vendors. The module provides students with the opportunity to explore relevant theory and practice in the areas of project risk, procurement and contract management. The impact of risk on projects and the ways of how that risk might be managed will be examined. Methods of assessment, mitigation and monitoring to manage the project to a successful completion will be proposed and examined. An assumed multi-disciplinary approach, covering risk and legal perspectives, will enable students to construct a framework for improving management action and professional practice in any project environment. In terms of contract law, the module programme aims to introduce the legal issues and risks involved in the negotiation, formation and management of procurement contracts, and elaborates on the available techniques to ensure effective contract risk allocation and protect a project delivery team from unexpected liability claims.

Module Overview

The purpose of this module is to help develop students’ understanding and management of people at work. This can be achieved by introducing students to key concepts and theories in the field of organisational psychology and their application to different organisational settings. A wide range of topics relevant to effective people management are covered including personality, selection and assessment, work motivation and job design, team dynamics, decision-making, and organisational change and culture. The module will also provide the opportunity for students to reflect on their own experiences and competencies as managers. As part of the module, there is an optional field trip where students can explore theories and techniques introduced on the module in a real-life setting.

Module Overview

The Professional Inquiry Project allows students to demonstrate their mastery of management within the field of their degree. It is an individual and independent project in which students can bring together and apply their learning from the programme to help to solve a chosen business problem or challenge, a real-world issue or a research topic. Although the foci and form of the final project are to be negotiated, the following are indicative of the potential formats students may choose: work-based project, client-based project; or other negotiated project such as the design of a new enterprise. Completing the Professional Inquiry Project gives students a unique opportunity to undertake an extended piece of personal research on a topic of their own choosing. By undertaking the project students will be demonstrating their ability to research and critically analyse and integrate complex information necessary in the world of contemporary management.

Module Overview

With the rapidly changing context of modern business, the process of introducing novel technologies, products, infrastructures, or systems has become vital yet more challenging due to often conflicting stakeholder requirements, irreversible investments, operating constraints, and associated risks. Therefore, any business change has to be project-managed as the current emphasis in business is on flexible, rapid response to customer demands. Managers increasingly require a project competence with a systems-oriented management style that cuts across traditional functional roles throughout the project life-cycle. Project management is thus considered a crucial management philosophy of how organisations manage fluctuating business environments and bring to life something innovative or simply never accomplished before. This module provides students with the opportunity to develop an essential understanding of the fundamentals of project management. It covers a variety of concepts and their practical application including project scope, time, cost, quality, stakeholders, and communication.

Module Overview

In our current globalised world, individuals in leadership and management positions within organisations across sectors are often confronted with a myriad of ‘wicked’ problems which demand for a comprehensive and cohesive strategy. To succeed, individuals in position of responsibility must develop a range of capabilities needed to gain competitive advantage in markets and in the globe. This module seeks to equip students with crucial knowledge and strategy making skills to perform as a strategist and contribute to responsible business strategies to give their organisation a competitive advantage. Students who fully engage with the module will have the opportunity to develop the knowledge and professional expertise needed for the formation, implementation, and analysis of responsible business strategies; to make appropriate choices between strategic options; and then to follow a strategic route that will deliver results that are robust, ethically sound, and socially responsible.

Module Overview

This course is also alternatively available with a Professional Practice pathway. This two year version of the degree provides the opportunity to undertake a period of professional practice at the end of first year to gain hands-on experience through a paid work placement. Students will be responsible for sourcing their own paid placements but will be supported by academic staff. Students will be interviewed before being accepted onto the Professional Practice programme to assess their understanding of the work involved and commitment to finding a Professional Practice placement. The professional practice (PP) period is not credit bearing and will not count towards the overall degree; however, to have the PP element attached to the degree, students are required to present a placement project linked to their experience while being in industry (e.g. learning outcomes, key skills developed, nature of the work and responsibilities). The presentation can be delivered face-to-face while the academic placement supervisor is visiting the student/organisation or via Skype if there are limitations (e.g. location). Throughout the PP period, students will be in touch with the University by having regular contact with their allocated supervisor. Students will be expected to complete a negotiated work based project as their dissertation.

† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.

Regardless of your current level of project management knowledge or experience, this programme will give you the chance to gain more confidence to better plan complex projects, lead and inspire teams, manage difficult stakeholders and cope with even the most unpleasant or unexpected risks. You will also have the opportunity to develop practical skills relating to the design, planning and execution of projects.

A highlight of the programme is an activity-based residential trip as part of the module Leadership Development, which will allow students to practice and receive feedback on their leadership skills in an engaging environment outside of the traditional classroom setting. Please note: our ability to undertake an off-campus residential is dependent on government guidance at the time with regard to travel and social-distancing. An appropriate alternative experience will be provided in the event that the residential cannot take place.

100 Funded Field Trip Places

As part of your global education at the Lincoln International Business School, we are offering students the opportunity to undertake funded international trips to exciting overseas destinations. Postgraduate students have the opportunity to travel to destinations in the UK, Europe, the USA, and the United Arab Emirates.

These field trips combine academic study with first-hand experiences of language, culture, and industry, allowing you to put theory into practice. We've designed themes specifically for postgraduate students that align with learning areas such as Industry (4.0), Financial Services, and Visitor Economy.
