1 Masters in Project Management Evening and weekend degree programmes for career professionals

2 welcome In today s sophisticated business world the qualifications needed to reach the highest levels in many business disciplines has grown significantly. Increasingly, professionals in areas such as Project Management are turning to Masters Degrees to accelerate their careers. In the UK, over 350,000 people each year enrol in Masters programmes and, on average, their lifetime earnings will benefit to the tune of 250,000 over the equivalent bachelor degree student. No wonder then that the demand for Masters Degrees is so high. At QA we recognise that for many of these career professionals, the traditional academic route to a Masters Degree is too slow, too costly and takes them away from the very careers they are trying to develop.

Too good to be true? Well, with 16% year on year growth, part time post graduate study is an established and successful route to success. So why not boost your career today?
