What is a Project Management degree?

A Project Management degree teaches students about the main stages of conducting a project and develops their technical and soft skills in order to prepare them to manage a project team, supervise projects and ensure they are completed successfully. Institutions that offer Project Management courses make sure that students have a perfect understanding of the importance of managing quality, setting goals, scheduling and coordinating tasks, team-working and assessing potential investment returns. Therefore, they help students in gaining budgeting, planning, negotiation, communication and conflict resolution skills through their Project Management programs. Students also learn how to control costs, manage all possible risks that might occur as a result of conducting a particular project, deal with contracts and manage/stimulate performance. Throughout a Project Management course, students are familiarized with different strategies that aid the successful management and completion of projects. This degree develops students’ ability to handle and resolve other issues that occur over the course of a project as well.

Benefits of a Project Management degree

Project Management courses develop a wide variety of skills, which students could use in different industries and occupations. The possession of multiple professional skills allows them to easily switch careers if they want to pursue opportunities outside the project management field. For example, students studying project management usually acquire very good organizational skills, such as coordinating activities and managing resources, which can be transferred to other occupations easily.

Acquiring the skills that a Project Management degree develops would allow students to take advantage of the increasing need for project managers in the contemporary business world. Project Management is a very competitive field and any additional qualifications, such as a degree or a certificate, increase an individual’s chances of securing a well-paid position as a project manager.

Apart from the promising career prospects, Project Management degrees could offer a lot of flexibility when it comes to academics. There are numerous online opportunities, offered by different Higher Education Institutions globally, to study Project Management. Online courses are suitable for individuals who have already started their professional careers and are unable to dedicate their time and effort to full-time studies. Online courses usually offer the same quality as on-campus courses and provide students with access to online resources to support their studies. However, what sets them apart from regular Project Management courses is the flexibility that students are provided with, which allows them to do the required work whenever and wherever they like.

    Programme courses still need to be improved

    It’s an international business school so studying here is a great opportunity to meet different cultures. The facilities are satisfying and most of the professors are competent, professional and responsible. But the course schedules may need to be improved, some of my courses have repeated lecture content. Safe and quiet location! Good experience!

    Some courses like risk management and bourses et titres financiers are of great value!

    It is a great choice for a short period as an international exchange for example. It is also a good chance for us to integrate in the French society. The city Bordeaux is really comfortable. However, the life here is a little expensive.

    opinions

    The university is located in Bordeaux, which is a very peaceful and safe city. So, students don’t need to worry about safety. Besides, the university is very international. There are students from different cultural backgrounds, therefore, it’s a good place to meet new people and learn different culture. Most of my classmates here are nice and friendly. I enjoy a good student life here. There is only one thing that needs to be improved: lecturers here should improve their teaching quality.

    Increased international cooperation but still insufficient

    KEDGE is a new school and the campus hardware is very good. The school is located in Bordeaux, the surrounding environment is safe, but the price is also high. As long as you teach in French and English, as a business school, there are a lot of lectures to be done, many reports have to be written, and there are group cooperation in each class. KEDGE’s professional gap is very large, such as the ranking of international procurement and supply chain is high, the relative market science ranking is relatively low. Because it is a new school, it is still insufficient in some aspects, such as helping students find internships and finding jobs. The mechanism has not been well established.

    Not bad but there is a lot of space to improve

    Basic facilities are great but professors level varies largely. Also, there are many repetitive courses. This point is a critical one to improve. The professors team of finance track is not as good as marketing.
