The principle reason that motivated me to pursue the MSc Project Management course is the appeal and challenge Project Managers experience in delivering assignments they undertake in their career. The qualification, indeed, lead to very smart and modern careers for graduates who love challenges, creativity, leadership and success. As a graduate of Mathematics, I have cultivated these features in my student life. Now, for my master level of study, I would like to take my chance of attaining formal skills in the area of project management.

From my research, I see that Project Management is the application of skills, knowledge and techniques to meet the objectives of a project and stake holder’s expectations. It involves managing and organizing

This study requires subtle accuracy and challenging traits of character to reach solutions. The study also involves structured process, method, skills and applications to achieve the targeted outcomes. I find similar academic process and learning objectives in Project Management course. In fact, project management is executed often by applying mathematical logic hugely, for example: Critical Path Analysis requires involves mathematics to assess project viability, budget and delivery time. And again, project managers are expected to know about the project costs and benefits which they may know by the help of mathematics. Again, logics, equations and calculations are mandatory to the successful running of a project. Although the basic may not always require math, but as soon as a project spread out of the world, it needs to become familiar with more complicated mathematical implement of logic and theory. Therefore, there are quite intimate relationships between my current qualification, knowledge, skills and the MSc Project Management I aspire to study. I can bring forward the transferrable skills and competences that I have gained from my study of mathematics (in particular knowledge and techniques of calculus, linear algebra, computer techniques, real analysis, numerical analysis, complex analysis, differential equation, differential geometry, topology & functional analysis, tensor…show more content…
I will not only gain new perspectives and ways of addressing projects, I will also develop other important soft skills which will enhance my value to employers – for example, presentation and report-writing skills, negotiation skills, team-work and leadership skills in research design and analysis, ability to maintain tight work-schedule and meet deadline. These are key transferrable skills within the field of project management. These go hand-in-hand with the standards, methodologies, theories and concepts which I will gain throughout the course of
