Learn Management Skills to Become a Leader in the Construction Industry
Enhance your career with Purdue’s Master of Science in Construction Management (MSCM). Skillfully designed to fill the knowledge gap between construction projects and executive construction management, this program teaches project professionals to be successful general and executive construction managers. The courses are delivered by industry practitioners who have a proven history of success in upper-level construction management. Learn from industry experts, gain practical knowledge, and immediately apply your skills in the real world.
The 100% online curriculum typically requires just two courses per semester and is designed to prepare qualified individuals for leadership positions in the construction industry. This program delivers the benefits of an MBA but with a focus on the construction industry, emphasizing construction company-level operations and management. This program is ideal for individuals with an accredited bachelor's degree in construction management, civil engineering, architecture, or a closely related field, and with at least two years of professional construction management experience.
By earning your degree online, you can build advanced skills at your own pace and study from anywhere in the world, choosing times for classwork that fit your schedule. The MSCM can be completed in as little as 24 months, giving you the opportunity to meet your career goals quickly.
For students who want to build advanced skills in a quicker timeframe than a traditional master’s degree, we offer a 4 course 'Executive Construction Management Graduate Certificate'. Courses completed for the Certificate can be applied towards the MSCM program if a student wishes to pursue a master’s degree in the future.
