Student Testimonials

"It surprised me how the small things such as having weekly meetings scheduled in advance and being aware of different cultures and different management styles are so important in the bigger picture in order for a project to run successfully. Since completing the course I am more confident organising and planning workloads and the small projects under my remit. I now seek out projects to run rather than shy away from this type of role which benefits both my team and my Manager."

    Given the continuous growth in the PM landscape construction is bound increasingly by triple constraints. This course, although not geared towards any specific industry, has given me great foresight in planning and execution of projects within my industry.

  • IBAT Student - Sarah

    The course offers lots of practical advise on not just managing a project but a team, the structure was very good. Frances mixed it up with theory and practical exercises done in class. She knows PM well and I especially enjoyed her own stories/experiences of projects she'd worked on. I'd recommend this course to anyone wanting to get a better understanding of Project management and looking to apply the skills they learn.
