Project Management

An MSc, or Master of Science, is an academic distinction bestowed upon those who effectively complete a predetermined set of coursework in what is often a science-based discipline. The MSc often enhances career opportunities as well as earning potential.

Project managers can be found in many different industries such as construction companies and municipal governments. Anytime a large organization initiates a project that requires coordination between multiple departments, project management can be a major asset to keep the project running smoothly and on schedule.

Can any other region can match the variety and dimension of Africa? With imitable history, landscape and cultural contributions, hardly any regions offer a study abroad encounter that is more challenging or more satisfying in terms of studying.
