Course content

This innovative postgraduate construction course is aimed at graduates who are, or have been, in construction-related employment, and who aspire to senior positions in the field of commercial management. The course aims to develop your awareness of the importance of construction projects to clients, and the context and constraints within which projects are procured and undertaken.

You will gain greater knowledge and understanding of the theories, concepts, principles, techniques, and intellectual and practical skills needed for the commercial management of construction projects. You will have the opportunity to plan and implement a personal research project related to commercial management. The course utilises web based technologies in the delivery and extensive use is made of enquiry based learning to enhance lifelong learning skills.

The design of the course recognises the significant challenges of combining postgraduate-level study with full-time professional employment. The blended learning approach offers you flexible access to the core content, while still providing the discipline and structure of regular attendance at the University.
