Course Summary


In an ever-changing and competitive environment, this MBA programme is designed for ambitious and experienced real estate and construction professionals seeking an accelerated route to senior management.

This MBA combines the theoretical and real-world knowledge of our industry experts with practical, applied learning and attracts built environment professionals from across the globe, offering virtual networking and exchanges of experiences in different international contexts.

This is an industry-recognised MBA that focuses on business and management principles within the local and international construction and real estate industries. It is a fully supported online programme with great flexibility to earn while you learn, giving you the ability to study anywhere in the world.


This leading specialist MBA provides a rigorous understanding of key property and construction subjects alongside core management disciplines such as finance, organisational leadership, strategic change management and marketing. Accredited by globally renowned professional bodies, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE), this leading specialist MBA offers professional body membership and a fast-track route to chartered manager status. The programme also leads to MRICS (chartered surveyor) status on passing the RICS Assessment of Professional Competence (APC).

Students who successfully complete the programme will also achieve a Chartered Management Institute (CMI) Level 7 qualification in Strategic Management and Leadership, subject to confirmation by the student that they wish to be registered for this award and subject to an associated CMI audit of their assessments. The CMI qualification will provide students with the opportunity to achieve membership of the leading professional body for managers and enhanced access to chartered manager status.


Studying online means taking control of when and where you study so you can study at your own pace, no matter where you are in the world. It means being able to balance your home and work life with your education so you can earn while you learn.

When you study at UCEM, you will be using our state-of-the-art Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), a specialised resource which provides you with everything you need to keep on top of your studies and succeed.

You will be guided through your learning with weekly study schedules and course guides, which you can adapt to suit your needs, pace and lifestyle. Studying online doesn’t mean studying alone as you will be fully supported by tutors and a community of students throughout your journey.


Your learning experience with UCEM will be fully supported through a range of activities on the VLE. You will also have access to UCEM’s valuable and comprehensive e-library service, providing you with a wealth of subject-specific materials to support you throughout your studies.


This programme enables aspiring and current leaders within the built environment to acquire management skills and competencies which will enable them to face the challenges of a rapidly changing world. The programme also provides a platform for students to further enhance their professional and technical skills in an area of the sector that will further improve their knowledge base.


The rationale for this module is to provide an integrated approach to corporate strategy and the management of change and innovation in a complex and uncertain business environment in construction and real estate. Initially, consideration is given for frameworks to manage the long-term strategic direction of organisations within a construction and real estate setting. The remaining focus is then on enhancing students? understanding of, and response to organisational change through leadership and associated factors. The determination of appropriate policies and strategies are explored within different cultural contexts to meet stakeholder interests.
