Project Management 

Uganda's only Little Open Online Course!

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 offered at postgraduate level for a maximum number of 25 participants. Tuition, learning materials, examination, and certification 100% free. You will be required to pay only a booking fee of UGX 100,000 (Ugandans and EAC members) or US$30 for others. Successful completion of the course will guarantee a Course Certificate which will be presented at the VUU 2017 graduation ceremony.

If you are interested in learning more about project management 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.
