A: Yes, PM is taught at BUiD in a generic manner. That means that irrespective of your first degree or your background you can benefit from it, if you are interested in this area. Currently, our student body includes people from business, marketing, finance, engineering, IT, HR, event management, defense, and media backgrounds. All of them attend the same lectures and participate in class discussions bringing their individual experiences to the group, thus, further enriching the overall learning experience.
Q: Can I transfer credits from other programmes I have completed at other institutes?
A: There is a possibility of doing that. However, that is something you will have to petition separately after getting an offer letter. In order for us to process that application we need the details about course contents, learning outcomes, mode of delivery, your performance and method of assessment for it.
Q: Do I have to attend all classes?
A: Our accreditation requires that students should be physically present in class for 70% of lectures.
Q: Can I specialize in any specific industry for PM?
A: Yes, you may specialize your PM learning by doing module assignments and your dissertation in an area of specializations of your choice.

Applicants must demonstrate evidence of basic knowledge and understanding of project management principles. To help you meet this requirement, BUiD is providing access to an internationally recognised online course - the Association for Project Management (APM) Introductory Certificate.
The aim of the dissertation is to give students an opportunity to focus in depth on one aspect of PM, which will normally be directly relevant to a real life workplace situation, and to allow them to demonstrate their independent research skills to the course assessors.
