Aims/Description: This unit deals with the main issues involved in international project management (IPM), as well as the cultural components of international communication. It is delivered through seminars that should be followed by the students┐ own research to develop independent thinking. Wherever possible, the students will work in international groups. By the end of the unit, students will be able to write a project proposal, identify the main issues relating to IPM, create tools to evaluate a project and demonstrate knowledge and understanding of current issues in IPM. The assessment includes a project proposal, an essay and a formative group presentation.
