MPA in Project Management
The study of project management is important as management failure of development projects has been a major obstrucle towards development, specially in developing countries like Bangladesh. In many cases, projects and programs are not well developed and so face implementation bottlenecks. Even if projects and programs are well developed, implimentation and management of projects face different problems like ’time over-run’ and ’cost over-run’. The major problem of project and program managent is the dearth of skilled man-power in projet design, implementation and management.
There has been growing awareness among the policy makers in Bangladesh about the need for skilled man-power in project management. In this context, development agencies, international development bodies, donor agencies, and organizations in public, private and non-profit sectors need skilled project managers to cope with the project design implementation problems. This program aims to strengthen project development and management in Bangladesh by preparing students to assume leadership in solving project design and implementation problems that are central to acheive cost-effective development.
