Large-scale business projects are complicated affairs. Usually several different departments and multiple teams each have to complete tasks or assignments within a specific time frame for the project to continue smoothly. This requires a lot of coordination and communication. Enter the project manager. Project management courses are available from many business schools and universities in Adelaide. Project management courses can also be completed online. They are indispensible to anyone who will ever have to manage a business project.
The University of Adelaide offers a number of project management qualifications, including a short course which is scheduled to take place at certain times during the year and which can also be delivered on demand. Adelaide Uni’s short course is ideal for project managers who need to brush up on their SWOT analysis, project feasibility assessment, prioritisation, risk assessment, goal setting, project management methodologies and monitoring and maintenance skills.
Adelaide University also has a range of applied project management courses, including Master of Applied Project Management, Master of Applied Project Management (Project Systems), Graduate Diploma in Applied Project Management, and Graduate Certificate in Applied Project Management.
The applied project management courses can be studied on campus in Adelaide or online.
