Additional Program Information
The Construction Business Management degree provides the skills for the management and oversight of a construction project, whether it’s a commercial space, office building, or residential complex. There’s almost no limit to the variety of projects you might take charge of as a construction manager, and a skilled manager will become more valuable as employers increasingly decide to hire managers with schooling to complement their experience. A construction manager doesn’t play a physical role in the actual construction of a building; that’s left to the workers below him or her. The manager takes a broader approach to the project, overseeing the many aspects required of a project, including the hiring of workers, the scheduling of various stages of the project, and the oversight of the many specialty trade workers that are often involved in a construction project, like electricians or plumbers. Construction managers can also work for different parties but with the same function; for instance, the manager on one project might be the owner of the contracting firm
