Why APIC Master of Project Management & Business (MPMB)?

Business & Industry Focus – Real World Impact – Enhanced Employability

This course emphasises a holistic approach, exploring the essential areas of project management knowledge and skills with a strong business emphasis. With a focus on the practical application of theoretical concepts and learning, graduates will be prepared with an understanding of project management and business, to enable them to thrive in the business world and build careers with confidence.

The MPMB course uses an Applied Research Methodology aimed at finding solutions for immediate problems facing society, industry, and business today. This approach means you can apply your learning through the MPMB to real world, specific issues. This methodology is favoured by industry experts and businesses. The knowledge and skills you will gain through applied research study are in demand by employers around the world.

Many other business and project management courses on the market offer a fundamental research methodology instead, which deals with the formulation of theories and outcomes of a more generalised nature. But, we want our graduates to have a real world impact and using an Applied Research Methodology gives you the best possible chance of future employment and career development.
