A construction management degree tailored to your interests

The online construction management degree allows you to focus on topics that matter to you and support your career interests. You can choose from two focus areas:

  • Construction management and technology.
  • Facility management.

If you want to enhance your competency in project, program and organization management, the construction management and technology focus area is the best choice for you. However, the facility management focus may be ideal if your career goals relate to the maintenance, operation, renovation or decommissioning of existing facilities. No matter which focus area you pursue, you’ll be a step closer to achieving your career goals.
