One of the critical success factors of a project is a strong leader who is able to manage the team members and other resources, so that the project can be completed on time, within budget and at an acceptable level of quality. As more and more human endeavours are organised in the form of discrete but inter-related projects, there is a need for well-trained leaders to manage these projects. The generic knowledge in project management helps future leaders undertake important and challenging tasks of organising manpower, materials, equipment, time and monetary resources to achieve project success.
The main aim of this minor is to provide a broad-based education in leadership and management, with specific focus on dynamic situations. This minor also aims to equip future leaders with skills and knowledge that are transferable from one sector to another.
The learning outcome is: NUS graduates who have strategic competencies to manage complex and large projects.
The Minor in Project Management programme is open to all NUS undergraduates in level 2 and 3 of a 4-year programme, except BSc (Project and Facilities Management).
