In today’s challenging economic environment, project managers, senior management and professional, needs to understand the fundamental supportive and strategic role that project management plays in business. If companies are to pursue their plans for stability and growth they need to cease seeing project management as a functional activity and place it at the core of their business processes. At the same time, project managers and planners share the responsibility to engage better on a business basis with senior executives.
Some project managers train specifically for a professional role in project management right from the start, whilst others progress through their organization in different roles, and at some point identify project management as a role they would like to take on. Sometimes it is a role that you fall into by accident or one that is thrust upon you; so practical experience is often gained before becoming certified.
If you are contemplating a career change then there are several things you should consider. Firstly you must consider if you think you have the right sort of personality to become a project manager, for instance:
• Are you comfortable taking the lead role in a high-pressure situation?
• Have you got the ability to effectively manage resources on a large scale?
• Can you think on your feet and quickly react to change?
• Do you have good problem solving skills?
• Do you have the experience with finance to manage large budgets?
• Can you be honest, and say ‘No’ to staff and management when required?
• Can you be decisive when required, and accept responsibility for your decisions?
If you answered yes to most of these questions then a career in project management is definitely worth considering. As long as you’re proficient in most of the above, you can learn the remaining aspects through good additional training.

The Special Executive Masters Programme (SEMP) is an Executive Education Programme.It is “NON CREDIT BEARING and NON DEGREE HOLDING”. The SEMP is NOT an actual Masters Programme but a trade mark of the Metropolitan School of Business and Management. The SEMP is very similar to the “MINI MBA” offered by Universities all around the world. However the modules of the SEMP programme was modelled after the regular masters programmes which allows delegates to gain a thorough knowledge of the subject. This programme cannot be use as a Masters Certificate or disguised as such as it carries no credit and cannot be used to pursue an academic PHD. However the relevancy of the certificate lies in the knowledge of the bearer to demonstrate ground knowledge of the subject the certificate was issued in, and this certificate counts towards the appropriate Continuous Professional Development (CPD).
