This is an international programme of advanced management studies for the modern construction industry.

We develop specialist expertise on how to manage organisations engaged in construction from the multiple perspectives of the client, design team, and contractor. This includes an overview of how the construction sector operates in the developed and developing world and of the macro-economic and micro-economic factors that influence the work of the sector.

The distinctive focus is on the management of the construction firm, including finance, organisation, project procurement, contracts for design and construction, information and communication technologies in the construction sector and the expectations of clients, developers, financiers and investors in a project.

The course suits those who have an interest in pursuing a career in the management of construction, whether on the supply side or the demand side. Graduates with professional experience will find this course provides a strong grounding for promotion to more senior management positions in the industry.
