MASTER’S DEGREE IN CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT DESCRIPTION:
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.
