This subject will equip students with the skills and background information to successfully complete either the professional Internship with an external organisation or the Capstone Group Project for an external organisation. Using the PRINCE2 methodology (Projects IN Controlled Environments), an approach to project management that is used widely in the public sector, students will learn how to develop a project, a business plan, and timelines; how to manage stakeholders and risks; and how to communicate project results. Finally, students will develop a career plan and a CV that profiles the knowledge, skills and insights that have been acquired during the course of their university study, and in particular, during their EMA degree.
Consistent with the overarching objectives of the EMA, students who complete this subject will:
•Be prepared to work effectively in a professional environment.
•Have applied and extended knowledge obtained through prior completion of EMA subjects in a professional setting.
•Have developed an understanding of why projects might succeed or fail.
•Have acquired project management skills.
•Have acquired skills in using the PRINCE2 methodology for project management.
•Have acquired skills in using spreadsheets and other tools to assist project planning.
