"I am very ambitious and believe the engine of life is to be inquisitive with a desire to know more. I saw this course as a challenge and a way for me to improve and gain an advantage over others in the workplace.
I choose this course because I believe knowledge is very important, not just to focus on my job but to gain an understanding of what is behind the job. My belief is that we should never stop learning.
The nature of my job means I work in very remote locations and travel to different countries so an online course meant I didn’t have to interrupt my studies when my location changed. I chose the MSc in Construction Project Management because it was the closest match to my job role and it was an online course.
I found that the Contemporary Construction Themes Module linked well from what I had previously studied and Procurement was very interesting when it came to tenders. Legal Rights and Responsibilities have been most useful and vital to my role.
The course is very well designed and the modules are very appealing to someone in the construction or infrastructure industry, someone in a project management role. This course gives you a 360° knowledge in all aspects of Construction Project Management.
I enjoy challenges, so now I feel more prepared for when a challenge should arise. Understanding common law has been a good achievement.
The best feature of the online course is that you are not alone, there is a really good amount of interaction between you, the Module Tutor and with other students on the course. If you want to interact with other students then you have the opportunity to do so.
My future ambition is to be a Chief Executive Officer and this course is part of my plan to achieve that goal."
