Course Summary

The MSc Construction Economics and Management postgraduate course equips graduates with the skills to become senior managers, policy advisers and decision-makers in any branch of the construction industry. It can also provide teachers and researches in these subject areas with professional academic development. This RICS accredited programme aims to develop students' knowledge and skills under two mutually supporting themes, for which the School of Construction & Project Management has an international reputation: the economics and finance of construction at project, firm and industry levels; the management of construction projects and enterprises. The career options for graduates are varied, and many students go on to work for construction, engineering and design enterprises, professional consultants and commercial research organisations, and client enterprises with significant project portfolios such as retailers or banks. Graduates are keenly recruited by many of the UK's very best construction-sector firms. The MSc can be used as a foundation for MPhil/PhD research. Students will take this course in flexible study mode also.

Entry requirements

Students need to have a lower second-class Bachelor's degree from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Generally, however, we will be looking for a standard close to an upper second unless the applicant can offer professional qualifications or a reasonable period of relevant practical experience.
