About This Course

Fully accredited by MQA, the MPM was the first from Southeast Asia awarded accreditation by Project Management Institute (PMI) Global Accreditation Center (GAC) for project management education programmes. MPM aims to advance executives, engineers, lawyers, accountants, managers, consultants, and business owners to be successful project managers with advance knowledge in project management principles and practice, having the ability to lead multidisciplinary project teams and develop effective and agile solutions in diverse technical and non-technical settings that incorporate IR4.0 and Sustainable Development Goals. Students not only learn from academicians and experienced practitioners to be proficient specialists in managing scope, time, costs and risks and conflict resolution but also become competent over a broad spectrum of general management disciplines that include leadership, strategy, ethics, and investigative case studies. Such proficiency endows individuals with the strength and confidence to thrive and adapt to future changes in project management, the environment and society due to having a framework for developing skill and acquiring knowledge.

The ever-challenging economic and investment environment internationally demands competence in project management, and success in project management heightens opportunities for advancement to senior management positions, in management consultancy or other rewarding entrepreneurial ventures. The MPM enables graduates to function effectively and ethically in their professional, business and personal capacity, thus contributing to society and nation-building. MPM graduates are granted substantial credit toward the experience requirement when they apply for any PMI certifications, including PMP.
