The programme is designed for those in the middle of their career looking to progress to senior management or become self-employed, but it is equally applicable to those who are looking to upskill and keep abreast of the needs of the industry. It is designed to introduce and explore the basic concepts and practices of project management and business planning specifically relating to the Built Environment. When combined with the focus on entrepreneurship, which is unique to the course at Griffith College, this enables learners to consider, create and grow entrepreneurial ventures, both within existing organisations and in start-ups.
In today’s fast-paced business economy of getting ahead and staying ahead, project management is a highly sought-after skill. New projects are often expensive and high-risk, so clients will pay more for the assurance of deliverables. From project planning to leading to monitoring to managing and delivering, this course will give you the vital skills and techniques you need to secure the success of high-performing projects. These skills are particularly useful if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, looking to upskill or are returning to the workplace. The programme is delivered through a mixture of online lectures and on campus workshops which take place in the evenings and weekends to allow for minimal disruption to the working day.
