About this course

The Master of Business and Project Management (MBPM) is a formally accredited to the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).
MBPM graduates will acquire knowledge of contemporary project, program and portfolio management as well as leadership and high level professional skills and attitude. The emphasis is on the enhancement of specific professional capabilities and knowledge, undertaken in a combination of coursework and research, and the acquisition of leadership and communication skills needed to lead complex project and program endeavours and deliver optimum results.
One of the most significant aspects of the course design and objectives is the emphasis placed on the development of strategic and business expertise associated with projects, programs and organisations. This emphasis is one of the differentiating aspects of the courses Asia Pacific International College offers in this field. Another unique aspect of the MBPM course is its integrated approach to management of projects, programs, portfolios and business ventures. MBPM candidates undertake research and fieldwork that immerse them in the application of latest concepts and techniques, and provide them with fresh perspectives, values and competencies to lead complex projects and endeavours.
