Project management professional development: An industry led programme

Andrew Gale, Mike Brown

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    This paper reviews a recently developed closed modular masters programme on generic project management as a project management case study of academic-industrial collaboration. Literature on some educational issues is reviewed. Particular attention is paid to the management of the development of the programme and the delivery phase. The linkage between return-on-investment, project management competencies and learning outcomes in the context of industrial-academic partnerships are explored. The paper also includes a discussion on the drivers, development and implementation of a managed learning environment, using a software package called WebCT. Discussion and conclusions focus on lessons learnt from the development and delivery of the programme.
