Language of studies:
The Project Management programme has been designed to take account of the changing needs of modern economies, brought about by rapid economic growth, and development, and the shift from the earlier importance of entrepreneurial activity to an emphasis on management decision-making. Vistula University’s philosophy is to deliver a competence-centred, educational package, that incorporates a mechanism for an on-going educational dialogue. Such a mechanism creates a forum for teachers, students, and employers,
enabling them to address current issues in the classroom context. As a consequence, you are better prepared to face the challenges, resulting from rapid technological progress, and constant changes in the business environment in Poland, Europe, and across the world.
The mission of the Project Management programme is to develop the Project Management competences by implementing an integrated education programme in the field of classic and agile project management concepts.
Objectives of the Project Management Programme are:
- Acquisition of knowledge and skills in project management by students
- Understanding the methods and ways of project management by students, and the ability to apply them, adequately, to the business / professional situation
- Students acquire practical project management skills by implementing active project management methods in the field of project management in a business environment
- Students gain practical skills in project management through the implementation of research projects in co-operation with business
- Supporting student initiatives and raising awareness in the field of project management.
- Promotion of high project management standards, support for building a knowledge base and contacts in the environment of project managers, programmes, and portfolios.
BENEFITS OF STUDYING MANAGEMENT
A business approach
The best candidates on the job market possess both hard and soft skills. Hard skills enable you to perform your duties. Soft skills, such as efficient communication and understanding, as well as grasping the concept of incentive mechanisms, make you a better manager. Vistula University’s business approach means that courses are designed to equip you with both sets of skills. This also means that our courses are taught by practitioners, and that you will be able to network, whilst still studying.
The Project Management programme does not require you to do an internship. However, the opportunity to do a three-month internship during your studies, will give you an edge over your competition. Our Careers Office can offer you internships in partner companies, both in Poland and abroad. This will enable you to start gaining professional experience.
You will learn, not only to manage capital, time, and skills, but also projects. Furthermore, you will be able to carry out a project from start to finish, whilst learning how to effectively work within teams.
The Vistula University Bachelor of Arts in Project Management is an exceptional under- graduate programme, designed for future project management professionals. Our unique programme addresses the growing need for professional managers, who can manage various types of projects – from early conception, and defining the scope, through to evaluation and lessons learned. The programmes will equip you with the tools, techniques, and standards developed by professional organisations, such as PMBOK, but also explore what is used in your own organisation. This will also help those new to project management to lead, and/or contribute, to projects more effectively.
