    The curriculum is designed to allow the student to acquire a Master’s Degree in Construction Management as well as prepare him/her for a career in the construction industry. This degree allows students seeking upper-level management positions in various sectors of the construction industry to improve their competency in project, program and company management areas.

    The program leading to the Master’s Degree in Construction Management (MCM) has been designed to provide students with the opportunity to apply advanced theoretical concepts and knowledge from all functional areas of the construction business through an analytical, decision-making process which focuses on solving practical problems. Students in the MCM program acquire new knowledge and use this knowledge to efficiently access and retrieve information through technology. The MCM program promotes the use of networking, leadership, and interpersonal competencies to develop and sustain effective relationships with peers, and to create an appreciation for the value of a diverse workforce.


    The MCM curriculum provides a challenging and creative learning environment with an intensive program of study that has a broad-based administrative emphasis. Recognizing that the management methods of tomorrow may bear little resemblance to methodologies in current use, the program emphasizes sound general principles and decision-making techniques that provide a base for continued learning and professional development rather than upon business procedures which are subject to obsolescence. The MCM with courses such as Strategic Management of Construction Organizations, Advanced Construction Estimating, Construction Claims, Construction Cost Analysis and Financial Control, Construction Productivity, and Legal Aspects in Construction will strengthen graduates’ construction business and management skills.
