Course content

The internationally renowned Construction Economics and Management MSc was the first programme of its kind in the UK, designed to equip students with the economics and management skills to analyse the kinds of problems that will confront senior managers, policy advisers and decision-makers in any branch of the construction industry.

Our school is part of the UCL Bartlett which is the UK's largest multidisciplinary Faculty of the Built Environment, bringing together scientific and professional specialisms required to research, understand, finance, design, procure, construct/refurbish and operate the buildings, infrastructure and urban environments of the future.

Outside the school we have links within UCL with those involved in engineering, computing and other areas of management.

Located in London, UCL is at the heart of a large cluster of architectural, engineering, surveying, real estate and management consultancies which, together with major construction/infrastructure clients, contractors and financial institutions, are next to the UK's centre of government with all the resources of a world city to hand.
