The course introduces students to the basic concepts and principles of Project Management. It covers project objectives plan, work break down structure, project scheduling, project stakeholder management, project organisation and roles. Students apply these methods and concepts on their training projects and learn how to consider sustainable development principles in project management. Students will find themselves projects and analyse project management practices applied in these projects. Furthermore, students will engage and reflect new developments in Project Management.

This interactive course is both theoretically based and hands on. By that it allows insights into the Project Management practice and enables students to reflect benefits and limits of project Management and prepare them to apply Project Management in business context.
