About the master

Project management is a discipline applied in many aspects of professional life. However, academic training rarely includes a project-based perspective for the organisation of work. This can lead to uncertainties, in the day-to-day work, about the best ways to deal with the problems arising in the projects and in their integration with the organisations: planning, control and project phases; change and risk management; communication and conflict management; safety and environment, etc.

In the European Master's in Project Management programme, you will acquire adequate theoretical knowledge for enhancing your development of advanced scientific knowledge on project management, in order to address the challenges that emerge in the scope of work organisation.

This master's degree offers the possibility of gaining a double degree with the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Dortmund (Germany) and has received the Unibasq Internationalization Mention, which promotes and recognises the internationalization of the student body.

This master's degree gives access to the doctoral programmes.
