The double accredited postgraduate degree in project management delivered at our Berlin campus gives you the hands-on strategic and leadership skills needed to forge a career in the dynamic field of project management.
Study your master’s in project management in Germany and develop an appreciation of how to lead projects to success using the latest project management skills, theories, and techniques. This course will teach you how to use organisational initiative to fulfil a range of projects across diverse, international industries.
Our master’s in project management will bring you up-to-speed with the latest project management practices, trends, and developments. For example, the recent Covid-19 pandemic has shown us the importance of project management in finding solutions to unprecedented challenges.

Because of this, your degree qualification will have wide reaching employer-appeal and is your ticket to a highly rewarding career.
We’ve also partnered with the Project Management Institute (PMI) Germany Chapter to ensure you can get the most out of your degree. You’ll have access to a number of valuable resources, including monthly local networking events and the PMI Germany job board, to name a few.
I have enjoyed doing my master’s here because it’s not like a traditional university where you sit in a classroom and a lecturer talks and you write down everything. I like that when we come here there’s actually a discussion and we do a lot of analysis.
