Excerpt from course description

Project Management


The course will give an introduction to project management. The students will be given an understanding of what a project is and a basis for planning, organizing and controlling projects. The course will further develop the students knowledge about the problems of project work and will, by means of theory and practical examples, show how to plan, organize, manage and control a project to achieve the set goals.

Please note
This course has some overlapping issues with the specialisation course in Project Management, 15 credits. Consequently a combination of these two courses in a bachelor's degree will not be allowed.
