Welcome to MSc Project Management

Today’s global businesses list project management skills as one of the most desirable when hiring new talent. MSc Project Management at the University of Lincoln provides an opportunity to engage with fundamental theories and best practices in a systematic, critical, and creative way.

Projects are now ubiquitous for businesses. They formalise the way in which organisations implement the constant improvements required to successfully operate in competitive markets and usually involve high risk and uncertainty. The historical legacy of project management is evident everywhere in the world. Everything that has been constructed, from the Egyptian pyramids and medieval cathedrals to skyscrapers and other prominent examples of contemporary infrastructure, was at some point a project.

Irrespective of current levels of project management knowledge or experience, students on this programme have the opportunity to gain the confidence needed to plan complex projects, lead and inspire teams, manage difficult stakeholders, and cope with the most unpleasant or unexpected risks. They are able to develop practical skills relating to design, planning, and execution of projects, in addition to conflict resolution and effective multi-functional project integration.

This course has been developed for both recent graduates and those seeking a change in their career path. It is therefore not restricted to students with a business related background.

This course has been developed for both recent graduates and those seeking a change in their career path. It is therefore not restricted to students with a business related background.

How You Study

The comprehensive and intellectually challenging curriculum is informed by professional best practice and is designed to meet the expectations of contemporary global organisations. The curriculum covers a range of project and programme management theory, including effective methods of project initiation, planning, execution, and close-out. The overall aim is to optimally balance the acquisition of both hard and soft skills.

The programme consists of seven core modules and one optional module, and concludes with a dissertation which encourages innovation and diverse pathways to the final assessed product. In this respect, the dissertation is an extended project that can accommodate a range of independent work.

Core modules:

  • Decision Analysis for Managers
  • Delivering Projects, Programmes, and Portfolios
  • Finance and Accounting
  • Project and Contract Risk Management
  • Project Planning and Management
  • Research Methods and Design
  • Teams and Leadership

Optional modules will run as long as minimum student numbers are met. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of modules to some students. As the options reflect staff research interests, they may change over time.

Contact hours and Independent Study

Each module typically consists of two or three weekly teaching hours over a teaching term. Four modules are usually studied per term, equating to eight to 12 hours per week. Part-time students usually study two modules per term, equating to four to six hours of contact time per week. Hours of study can vary from term to term for both full and part-time students and can be spread throughout the week.

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 spent in class, students are expected to spend at least three to four hours in independent study. For more detailed information please contact the Programme Leader.

An Introduction to Your Modules

Module Overview

The aim of this module is to enhance the students’ decision capabilities when confronted with strategic or operational choices. Students will have the opportunity to learn how decision analysis tools can be used to structure and analyse decision problems and how a mix of data and judgement can help decision makers to better achieve their objectives.

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 dissertation provides an opportunity for students with a range of experience and interests to apply and develop their existing skills and knowledge to an independent study project, which affords an opportunity for both the expression of original thought and creativity; together with the application of analytical skills and critical reasoning. Our approach to dissertation is to facilitate innovative approaches and diverse pathways to the final assessed piece of work; in effect the dissertation is an extended research project. The dissertation topic should be aligned to students' subject of study.

Module Overview

This module is designed to introduce concepts and techniques for costing and break-even analysis and brings in the notion of pricing from a larger viewpoint in the market as well as from a strategic management view. Later, the module aims to cover the topics of financial analysis, budgeting and planning, and the sources of finance.

Module Overview

Projects are managed in dynamic environments where prospects for risk and uncertainty need to be appraised and controlled. The module covers the topics of contract law and protection, dispute resolution, uncertainty and risk, complexity as well as risk perception and cognitive biases.

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

This module aims to prepare students for undertaking the research for their Masters dissertation or project, and other assignments. It is designed to introduce students to the core principles of research design, the research methods they are likely to encounter in their research, the basics of research design and the organisation of independent study.

Module Overview

This module provides students with the opportunity to develop an understanding of how to create highly performing teams. Through a review of theories of leadership, team formation, motivation and identity, students have the chance to gain a theoretically sound understanding of team behaviour and effectiveness. Practical class exercises will aim to enable students to develop their skills as team leaders and members.

Module Overview

This module aims to introduce students to a range of non-traditional business models and to challenge established expectations and norms about business ethics, motivations, value-systems and practices. The module presents the notion that enterprises can operate due to motives other than profit-maximisation and that Social Purpose Organisations can exist to fulfil social functions using business models to create an alternative basis for sustainability and development. Students are challenged to think critically about these forms of organisation and their impact on societies (positive and negative). Students are also challenged to consider how issues such as performance management can translate into the operations of community enterprises.

Module Overview

This module is designed to introduce students to the principal issues underlying international and comparative human resource management (IHRM) in a global context. Such issues have risen in prominence due to increasing trade liberalisation, ‘globalisation’, spread of multinational corporations (MNCs), outsourcing to Asia, developmental focus on Africa and economic integration within the European Union. As firms increasingly internationalise, suitable strategies for managing human resources have become critical to competition between the MNCs. Students can develop an insight into managing human resources in different national contexts and examine those global and national factors that impact approaches taken to international human resource management. More specifically, the module aims to discuss and analyse those factors which result in variations in HRM practices and policies across national business systems.

Module Overview

The module follows a coherent and holistic approach to disaster management in its reconciliation of the key processes of preparedness, response, recovery, and rehabilitation. It draws upon experience from major disasters around the world – both historical and contemporary.

Module Overview

In order to ensure organisational success, we must seek to manage relationships with upstream and downstream suppliers and customers to deliver increased customer value at less cost to the supply chain overall. It is often argued that an organisation is only as a good as its supply chain and that the global supply chain can be a key source of competitive advantage. In the age of globalisation, many organisations are only as good as their global supply chains. Global supply chains give the organisation access to strategic resources and enable them to compete in global markets. Procurement and Supply Chain Management as a discipline has changed considerably in many companies and organisations in the recent past. Considering the amount of money generally involved in the preparation and execution of procurement and supply decisions, this is not a surprise and it has been argued that an effective and efficient operating purchasing and supply function can make an important contribution to company results and also add significant value. Traditionally, the procurement department has acted as the intermediary which negotiates the agreements and contracts with suppliers and subsequently monitors their compliance to those agreements. However, this ‘traditional’ role is changing rapidly and procurement and supply chain managers are assuming more strategic roles within organisations, focused on achieving better performance from suppliers though approaches such as more active management of supplier relationships.

Module Overview

This module aims to further enhance managerial competence and capability by providing the opportunity for students to develop the skills to become competent management consultants. Such competency is highly valued as it can help facilitate internal and external organisational consultancy interventions that add value at both an operational and strategic level.

Module Overview

This module is designed to introduce the key concepts and challenges in humanitarian logistics, while tying into larger concepts of non-profit management, disaster preparedness and response, as well as agile and transient supply chains. Students are expected to address management issues far beyond the realm of humanitarian responses. The approach taken to this module is interactive, with a focus on case studies and insights from practitioners, as well as academics.

Module Overview

Strategy is the heart of every organisation. This module explores how strategy is conceived, how it affects the organisation and how the organisation can be designed to realise its strategy efficiently and effectively. The module aims to support students in developing their strategic thinking skills through a review of diverse theories, models and practical exercises.

† 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.
