Course Summary

Our Construction Management and Economics MSc prepares you for leadership roles in the construction and property industries - developing your analytical, technical and managerial skills.

This Master's in Construction Management and Economics was developed in response to a growing demand for capable and creative professionals from the construction and property industries. We therefore prioritise strategic thinking and the skills needed to respond to volatile economic conditions.

On this course, you will learn the theory and application of economics, finance and management in the context of large-scale construction projects. Our modules include construction economics, construction project management, development economics and planning, and real estate development and investment.

Graduates will be able to pursue roles in project and construction management consultancy, quantity surveying, or careers within construction companies, environmental agencies, local authorities and regeneration agencies.

Teaching

In a typical week, you will have lectures, seminars, and workshops (which may include critiques) to discuss your work with colleagues and tutors. Visiting lecturers will also be available in each term for specialist lectures, workshops and tutorials. Theory courses will be taught alongside other Master's programmes to encourage subject crossover and multidisciplinary views.

Contact hours may fall between 9am and 9pm, depending on your elective courses and tutorials.

Assessment

There are variety of assessments, including coursework, a portfolio, presentations and exams. Each course has formal assessments which count towards your grade. Portfolio submission presentations, essays and reports all form part of your degree. Some courses may also include practice assessments, which help you monitor progress and do not count towards your final grade.

Modules

The module explores the sometimes contentious interface between the development process and the government maintained planning system. Traditionally planning intervention has variously been justified on the public interest grounds of protecting amenity and the environment while encouraging a rational use of land in response to growth. However in recent years the rationale for planning has coalesced into promoting sustainable development, so that financially viable development proposals are also expected to provide some combination of social, economic and environmental benefit. Given that those taking the course are likely to pursue careers which involve promoting or managing development, the course will explore how these sometimes conflicting objectives can be realised.
