What do project managers do?

Project managers are responsible for planning, executing, and delivering completed projects, meeting deadlines and staying within budget. The project manager is the leader of the entire project and all tasks at hand; they manage the project scope, the team members, and all resources and funding.

They are also responsible for risk assessment, delivering updates on progress to both clients/stakeholders and team members, and providing feedback to their staff on how to improve in future projects.

It is a highly respected role that can be fulfilled across all industries and locations. Gaining work experience or targeted education is incredibly valuable for anyone's CV, and will undeniably expand your career opportunities.

Should I study project management at university?

For some, undergraduate courses related to leadership and project management will offer several options upon graduation, including internships and entry-level roles. For others, a short course or vocational education will provide the most benefits and opportunities post-completion. It all depends on your individual goals, budget, and accessibility to education.

Priority Management offers courses with nationally recognised qualifications to give you practical skills and insight into proven project management techniques and strategies. You can undertake this training individually, or we can partner with your workplace for added support and accessibility.
