Competencies and objectives


Course context for academic year 2023-24

The subject of International Project Management is taught in the third year of the Degree in International Relations, as a mandatory subject. This discipline aims to educate and train students in the different Project Management methodologies that are currently used as guides or standards in international environments, as well as their related techniques and technologies and their familiarization with their common vocabulary.

An important challenge for organizations today is to maintain a balance between their business operations and their transformation in order to survive and compete in a dynamic and complex environment. Projects are the context through which change is possible, and while many of the skills required are similar to operations management, there are crucial differences between managing day-to-day business and managing project work.

Project Management focuses on planning, delegating, monitoring and controlling all aspects of the project, and even motivating those involved to achieve the project objectives within the expected performance indicators, in terms of duration, cost, quality, scope, benefits and risks.

The responsibility and competencies to carry out the management of the project falls on the figure of the Project Manager, who develops the planning and integration of all the indispensable aspects for the successful conclusion of the project.

Project Management is a discipline of growing interest to companies around the world, which has been updated in recent years thanks to the contributions of technology organizations with the emergence of agile management models. This new paradigm has evolved into hybrid frameworks between traditional techniques and these new approaches, all of which are covered in the course.
