Master in Project Management

Program description

The Master in Project Management at Metropolitan International University has been developed based on the premise that the successful development of a project depends largely on a frontline management, or what is the same: a quality organization, appropriate planning , control and completion of the project.

Well-directed projects are a guarantee of successful projects, which in turn helps to structure successful companies.

According to the Project Management Institute (PMI), managing a project is the “art of directing and coordinating human and material resources throughout the life cycle of a project, through the use of techniques current management, to obtain the predetermined objectives of scope, costs, time, quality and satisfaction of the participant ”. (http://www.pmi.org/)
