The Building Construction Management provides you with the expertise needed to effectively lead a construction project or business. You’ll obtain the technical proficiency, the financial knowledge, the entrepreneurial skills, and the business acumen needed for success in this ever-evolving industry. The curriculum teaches you how to integrate multiple professional requirements for bringing construction projects to successful completion, including estimating, cost control, risk, new technologies, project planning, scheduling, negotiation, and labor relations. The coursework also examines how to manage the various types of contractual relationships governing the owner, the contractor, subcontractors, consultants, and architects, as well as the essential skills of bidding, negotiating, handling disputes and claims, devising and implementing strategic business plans, and leadership.
Through counsel from industry leaders, our advisory board members, faculty members, and colleagues in the construction industry, the curriculum for the St. Xavier’s BCM department is continually evaluated against current best practices and the highest standards to give you immediate access to knowledge and skills that address the current issues and developments in the industry.
