Course Structure

In order to develop skills, candidates attend 20 days (full-day) on campus (4 blocks of 5 days each).

People with a bachelor degree may attend the full 20 days but they also have to option to attend the “Weekender” that is presented on 8 Fridays and 8 Saturdays. In order to accommodate people who cannot afford to be away from work for 20 days, the “weekender” presentation of the Programme in Project Management reduces the number of days away from work, to eight Fridays and eight Saturdays. This offering, however, necessitates more self study and hence the requirements for admissions are stricter: a degree from a recognised organisation is mandatory.
