A good question to ask yourself is if it's necessary to pursue a concentration in project management. A good general MBA program will undoubtedly help you develop your project management skills in various classes.

Another question is where do you want to go? Narrow that down, at least by region, and people here will probably have some suggestions.

Like maubia mentioned, Manchester would be a good school to look into. There's a good part-time project management track that includes international perspective and project experience. Takes three years at least though.

Southern New Hampshire - which is by the way, not a program that comes up a lot here - has an online project management MBA that can be completed in 18 months.

In terms of a more general program, UC Davis now requires students to take a robust, 20-week project management course starting this fall. Would be worth looking into.

Oxford offers an MSc in programme management:
www.sbs.ox.ac.uk/degrees/MPM/Pages/default.aspx

For obvious reasons, this is potentially the highest prestige option. (Though not cheap for an MSc!) Personally, I would much rather aim for an MSc from Oxford than an MBA from Manchester.

Hi.. I had a talk with Oxford about this program a couple of weeks ago; that was their answer

"This programme is designed for individuals managing large-scale, complex and transformational programmes, that are typically valued in the hundreds of millions of dollars region"

so actually they target people with particular background.
If you don't meet such requirements you could think about this:

Indeed, but this program requires at least seven years' of work experience - and since OP only has three it's a bit out of his reach at the moment.

However, it is a good program - although with its modular format, more along the lines of executive education than a standard MBA or even other MSc's.

Hi guys, thanks for your reply. I am looking for some good universities in Canada. I saw only two universities which are offering MBA in project management. How about Queen's University? Is it a good option for studying in Queen's..? Any suggestions?

The modular format is common to several Masters-level programmes at Oxford University (not only this MSc and the PGDips at Said, but some other MSc programmes outside Said too). The modular format can help people integrate learning with their work.

No surprises here. IMO, it's a strategy at the Said to openly require a very strong profile. This acts as a pre-filter, i.e. candidates without a very strong profile will be discouraged from applying.

I imagine this would be a great programme. Steve Carver is one of the faculty and he's a star teacher.

This is sort of an old thread, but I wanted to see if anybody had any more information about good MBA programs with a focus in project management. I'm looking at these (focusing on the US or Europe):

US PROGRAMS:
UT Dallas/Jindal: MBA with an emphasis in Project Management
San Diego State University: MBA with a specialization in Project Management

EUROPE PROGRAMS:
Grenoble Ecole de Management: MBA doesn't have a specialization but a full module in Project Management
SKEMA Business School: It's an EMBA in Project Management (not an MBA)

Are there others I should look at?

Thanks!

Because most European MBAs are one year the specialisations are typically not very deep. Instead, people would take an MSc in project management.

Interesting - I haven't heard much about MBA programs in project management.

I would think that the specific skills that one would need to be a good project manager - leadership, strategic thinking, time/cost management - would be sufficiently developed in a broader format, no?

I'm curious about what these specialized programs offer beyond these general skills.
