A new postgraduate qualification for project and program management is being offered by the Asia Pacific International College (APIC).
The Masters of Business Administration (Project and Program Management) is a two-year postgraduate course designed to prepare individuals for leadership and management challenges in business, projects, programs and complex systems.
The Masters course has been developed to provide graduates with a twin focus on general business and project/program management using a foundation of contemporary business and project management literature, theory and practice.
“We have taken the bold steps of redefining business and management education to meet present day challenges,” said Professor Ali Jaafari, president of APIC. Jaafari has long been an advocate for education that bridges academia and real world management.
The aim is to give students a systemic view of how businesses are organised as they learn how projects are conceptualised, developed, planned and executed within enterprises and different industries.
While business-inclined individuals would benefit from this dual focus, Jaafari noted that “engineering, IT, construction and other technology-based graduates will particularly find our programs empowering and relevant to their aspirations”.
