Your professional future as a Project Management professional

New working time models, more diverse tasks, agile working in distributed teams - the new world of work makes good project management a central building block of corporate success. Project management is of increasing importance in all areas of business and public life and offers attractive career opportunities.  

After graduation, you can work as a:

Project Manager/Programme Manager

In all areas of the economy, more and more work is being done on projects. Especially in large or complex projects, a systematic approach is necessary. The position of project manager can involve very large responsibilities (e.g. building an airport). Although there are projects with exclusive business orientation and others with an exclusively technical orientation, very many projects require knowledge from both areas as well as the ability to weigh the different aspects against each other.

Scrum Master

SCRUM is an agile project management method that is nowadays not only used in software development but can also be applied to many business-related areas. The Scrum Master has the task of enabling the other team members in the SCRUM team to apply the rules of SCRUM for the most efficient project work. They are responsible for ensuring that all participants understand the SCRUM theory, practices, rules and values. In doing so, they act as a facilitator and coach and provide support in the SCRUM process. Their goal is to enable the SCRUM team to work according to the rules of SCRUM and to be as efficient as possible.

IT Project Manager

IT project managers plan, organise, and control information technology projects. They coordinate all employees, departments and external service providers involved. In doing so, they always keep an eye on the schedule and the budget. In addition to the correct implementation of the projects, they are also responsible for achieving the goals.
