Excerpt from course description

Project Management 1


This course is held in english, and is a paralell to BIK 6600. If students can follow lectures in Norwegian, they can combine this course with BIK 6601 Project Management 2 (PL 2): 7,5 credits and BIK 6510 Project Management 3 (PL 3): 15 credits.

The bachelor program in project management consists of three courses, where each course builds on the previous one. Students should follow the progression through the program (Project Management 1 before Project Management 2, and Project Management 1 and 2 before Project Management 3). When all three courses of the program are completed, they are seen as equal to the 30 credits bachelor program or as an optional specialization in the bachelor program.

Center of Distance Education will offer this program.
