Are Program Management skills different from Project Management skills?

My company has a series of projects with dependencies between them (eg back end hardware refresh/virtualisation, new desktop build/roll-out, database upgrade and implementation of new functionality, new major release of existing applications, and implementation of a couple of new applications). All are significant enough to justify individual project managers, and we want to coordinate them all within a programme.Question: Are the skills required to run a single large project the same as those required to manage a programme? If not, what are the differences, and what additional training is required?
