The Action Learning MBA in Project Management and Control is designed for project managers who want to provide embedded and sustainable solutions in their project-driven organisations. Business School Netherlands offers this programme in conjunction with ARAM Academy, a leading Project Management and Control institute in Europe.
The Action Learning MBA in Project Management and Control
provides you with knowledge and skills in all fields of management. All management fields are important in successful project management and control, hence the emphasis on the role of specific management domains on large-scale projects. Through the application of Action Learning methodology you learn how to better equip and develop your organisation, and quickly see tangible results within your personal work environment.
The programme is divided into three phases:
During the first phase learning takes place through our outstanding distance learning environment. You gain an in-depth understanding of Action Learning and perform an extensive analysis of your own organisation.
During the second phase of the programme a visit to the BSN campuses and ARAM Academy in the Netherlands takes place – adding up to three visits filled with intensive, interesting workshops with duration of ten days each. Workshops cover all management fields, featuring state of the art masterclasses covering all important project management and control fields. During your trips to the Netherlands you complete four Action Learning Projects, fully focussed on your own work environment and organisation.
In the third and final phase of the programme you write your Dissertation – your tangible, measurable contribtion to your organisation’s strategy.
The workload of this MBA programme is expected to cumulate to approximately 12 hours per week.
