The manager’s role may be challenging in various ways:

Project process

“Someone” must keep the research, planning, execution and polishing phases under control

Team issues

Managing and leading the team through issues like part-time effort, conflicting interests, other studies, hobbies, work, personal life, communication, skills and motivation, workload, individual responsibility, and so on.

Limited means

Rather limited means for punishment or reward

But there is also something special for you:

Coaching

Extensive training on project management and communication.

2 extra credits

Project managers will receive 2 extra credits adding up to 12 credits in total with the possibility to receive 15 credits for extra assignments (or more).

CHALLENGE YOURSELF
AND LEARN

PROJECT MANAGERS SELECTION

The selection of project managers will be done as a part of the team formation process. If you are studying product development, considering the role of a project manager is a natural option.

If you’ve already studied project management, why not to try out how the science works in practice? We’ve also had awesome managers from Design, Business and from Cognitive science.

PROJECT MANAGER AS A LEADING ROLE

The candidate must understand that the management position is not something for the manager to fulfil the need for recognition. It is a leading role that is important for the whole team, and an amazing opportunity to learn project management. If you have courage, enthusiasm, and humor – why not go for it?

We would be happy to hear if you are interested in the role of a project manager and answer any additional questions you may have, so please feel free to contact the teaching team.
If you’re interested in the position make sure to attend the first lecture and sign up for the potential project manager candidates evaluation session!
