Uganda’s first free and open online course

Virtual University of Uganda
Postgraduate Certificate Course: Project Management for Development
18 May – 20 June 2015
Uganda’s first open online course!
Project Mgmt

“Project management is the application of processes, methods, knowledge, skills and experience to achieve the project objectives. A project is a unique, transient endeavour, undertaken to achieve planned objectives, which could be defined in terms of outputs, outcomes or benefits.” (https://www.apm.org.uk/WhatIsPM)

This open online course is a short, intensive course offered at postgraduate level for a maximum number of 50 participants. You will be required to pay only a booking fee of UGX 100,000 (Ugandans and EAC members) or US$50 for others. Successful completion of the course will guarantee a Course Certificate which will be presented at the VUU 2015 graduation on 18 July.

If you are interested in learning more about project management (in the context of development) to become more productive in your current professional role, or you simply want to add project management to your existing skills set, then this is an excellent course for you. You do not have to attend class or travel to the university: you study the whole course online when you are able to log in to the teaching platform. The course is also intended to be a gentle introduction to online study for those who have no experience in online learning.

According to PMI, “projects can be simple or complex. While simple ones can be managed with a little bit of planning and a healthy dose of common sense, complex projects need a more formal approach.” In this course you will learn all the key elements of good project planning such as estimating, planning, and scheduling. You will also learn how to anticipate potential problems (risks) and ways to mitigate these. You will learn key management skills and monitoring and evaluation techniques to ensure that the projects you are involved in are successful.
