Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) will offer a Master of Science degree in Construction and Business Management in Fall 2010. The degree targets professionals who are working in, or have experience in, the construction industry.
"Business development is no longer restricted to those working in an office. Architectural engineers, construction managers and civil engineers are finding themselves responsible for bringing new business to their companies," said Dr. Steven C. Bialek, chair of the MSOE Rader School of Business. "The new Master of Science degree in Construction and Business Management at MSOE will help those working in the field advance their technical expertise and prepare them with necessary business development skills."
Professionals will learn the leadership tools necessary to compete in the ever-changing and highly competitive construction management environment. It provides students with advanced skills and understanding in construction project administration and business management. The new master's degree was created in conjunction with the MSOE Rader School of Business and the university's Architectural Engineering and Building Construction Department.
Courses will focus on business development, new and emerging technologies for construction and project delivery systems, and executive administration of construction firms. The degree prepares graduates for upper-management positions in the construction industry. msoe
