“This course was an opportunity for me to understand the project’s life cycle and its different stages. I have also learned about analytical and planning tools such as stakeholders and needs analysis, results chains, critical path method and cost scheduling.”

The capacity to design and manage projects is a critical skill to access funding sources in the modern global economy. Nowadays, project managers are expected to have a broad understanding of project design and management related issues. They need to have a basic understanding of the criteria for initiating, planning, implementing and closing effective projects, and be multi-skilled in order to effectively tackle the challenges of private sector projects of today.
"The blended format is a very nice approach. The online training allowed me to understand the concepts, to read the documents and to learn other techniques. During the face-to-face part, I felt comfortable because I already knew the subject and it was a great opportunity to exchange details and real-life examples with the teachers and my classmates.”
