Project Management in East Asia (online course/asianet) 4 op

EAST0158, MDP in East Asian Studies, Yhteiskuntatieteellinen tiedekunta



This course introduces students to project management in general and in East Asia in particular. Students learn to design and plan a concrete (notional) project, organize and manage resources to achieve the specific project goals, outcomes and outputs. The course starts with basic exercises in project planning techniques after which students learn about project management in East Asian countries. To complete the course, students draft in groups a project proposal for a project that could be implemented in East Asia. Lecturers will provide individual feedback to the project proposals.


This course is designed to train students in developing and ?pitching? a project idea, drafting a project proposal, and writing in a concise manner. At the end of the course students will be familiar with basic techniques of project planning and central aspects of project cycle management. During the course students will be required to do both individual exercises and group work. The group work assignment (drafting a final project proposal) will enhance their online teamwork skills, which are essential in today?s working life. Course participants will exchange and discuss project ideas and make decisions with other group members. By means of drafting a project in a specific East Asian country, students deepen their understanding of the institutional and socio-political setting in one country, acquire intercultural knowledge and sensitivity for institutional differences, and learn how to transfer their theoretical knowledge into skills of practical implementation.


The course requires strict commitment to the course schedule. Failure to do the required course work in time inhibits from continuing the course. Online lectures, exercises (Logical framework, WBS-diagram, GANTT chart, budget), reading materials, short summaries of country specific lectures, final project proposal.


Organised online in the Moodle learning environment, 11 January - 5 March.
