Advanced project-based management

Individual course

The course discusses the practical application of project management in different types of projects, especially complex ones, and in different organisations and industries. The course covers advanced project management approaches and methodologies in specific core areas, including organising, scheduling and management of time on project and system life cycles, management of risk and uncertainty, management of stakeholders and multi-firm networks.

The course covers the following core areas organised in six modules:

  • Module 1: Investment planning and project budgeting
  • Module 2: Project scheduling and interdependencies
  • Module 3: Project risk and uncertainty
  • Module 4: Managing multi-firm projects
  • Module 5: Managing external environment
  • Module 6: Project management in different contexts and industries

Learning outcomes

Upon completion of the course the students are able to

  • apply methods for life-cycle costing, capital budgeting, cash-flow analysis, financing and cost management in projects (Module 1).
  • apply analytical methods that improve our ability to handle interdependencies, uncertainty and dynamism in project scheduling (Module 2).
  • classify risks and analyse uncertainty in projects (Module 3).
  • propose processes and structures to successfully manage multi-firm projects (Module 4).
  • evaluate the relationship of projects and their external environment and stakeholders (Module 5).
  • evaluate, analyse and distinguish between approaches and processes to manage real-life projects and project teams (Module 6).

Participating in the Advanced project-based management (APM) course gives the student excellent capabilities in how projects are developed, planned and executed for long-term value creation, and how project business is managed at the firm-level and at the level of international business.

Company representatives are welcome to the course.
