Current market dynamism and the companies that drive it give rise to an increasing need to manage multiple projects at once. As a result, at the Management level it is crucial to know the status of a company¿s projects at all times, the scope of the projects the company is considering carrying out and the results of the projects that have been completed. The best way for businesses to do this is by ensuring the quality, skills and abilities of their Project Managers.

The Master in Project Management is designed to train managers who know how to lead, plan, organize and supervise complex and global projects, achieving set objectives in terms of results and efficiency.
