Program and project management is used in a variety of industries and is applied across a wide variety of situations.

Individuals in these roles are responsible for managing or directing a program to achieve organisational objectives. A program is defined as a set of interrelated projects, each of which has a project manager. These individuals use initiative and judgement to direct, plan, and lead a range of program functions, with accountability for personal and team outcomes within broad parameters.

Program Managers use cognitive and communication skills to identify, analyse and synthesise information from a variety of sources and transfer their knowledge to others, and creative or conceptual skills to express ideas and perspectives or respond to complex problems.

If you want to advance your skills in the areas of project management, leadership, program execution, business innovation, mentorship, and more, the Advanced Diploma of Program Management could be perfect for you.
