Study plan and program details

The Master of Project Management (MPM) program equips graduates and professionals from any discipline to become evidence-based decision-makers, innovative problem solvers, responsible social citizens, and future leaders. The MPM program provides specialised knowledge and skills in the area of project management and can be tailored to include another specialisation (in a different discipline) or personal choice of studies via the ANU-wide electives.


In a typical first semester, students will study three of the four introductory courses that provide a common foundation for all Research School of Management (RSM) postgraduate coursework programs (with the fourth in the second semester). This common core will enable students within RSM to have a broad understanding of key management discipline areas that will support future studies towards a wide range of potential career paths. The common core also provides scope for students to transition between programs (if desired).

This is followed by depth in Project Management studies, as well as breadth course options that provide students with skills in leadership, technology, risk management, accounting, international business, time management, strategy and more.

Industry placements via the CBE Internship courses are also available.


Research School of Management graduates complete their studies having demonstrated knowledge and skills qualities of:

  • Evidence-based thought leaders
  • Innovators and pioneers
  • Collaborative problem solvers
  • Responsive and resilient professionals
  • Effective communicators
  • Internationally informed managers
  • Ethical and responsible decision-makers

  • Responsible decision-makers
