Compare 12 Masters Programs in Construction Project Management

A master's degree could be the transition a student makes to obtain terminal education, or it could be the final step in an academic career following undergraduate studies. These courses tend to take somewhere between one to six years, most often two to four.

What is a Master in Construction Project Management? These degrees are usually targeted towards individuals who wish to pursue a career as a construction manager, and as such, often contain a mixture of theoretical and practical coursework. Example classes might include risk management, real estate, financial management, sustainable design and project management practicum courses. Due to the professional nature of many of these programs, students might also find their classmates are able to provide a wealth of experiential knowledge that may be put into practice immediately upon graduation.

Organizational skills essential to a manager's success are often sharpened during the course of a master's program. Knowledge of finance and design might also help existing construction professionals streamline their businesses and contribute to the success of their organizations.

The cost of a program is an important concern when considering your options. Contact your chosen schools directly to confirm you are getting the most accurate tuition figures.

The management of construction sites and projects often includes many complicated concerns. For large endeavors, these duties are usually divided between several management professionals. Risk managers, for example, might work to develop safety protocols, employee policies and insurance schemes to minimize the potential for loss and mitigate its unlikely occurrence. A graduate of a Master in Construction Project Management program might also find work as a consultant, helping investors or groups determine the feasibility of various construction efforts through a data-focused approach and knowledge of financial markets.

Furthering an education could be the key to unlocking the potential of your construction experience. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
