Construction Management can be a very exciting field, as every project consists of building something new. Individuals in this field must be comfortable leading people and making decisions - sometimes those that are risky. You will be working with budgets, time estimations and multiple schedules; keeping everything going requires time management and the ability to multi-task.
NKU’s Construction Management program is nationally recognized and accredited by the American Council for Construction Education. Our graduates are equipped with both the theoretical and hands-on skills required to manage a construction project from inception to completion. The program covers the technical aspects of project design and execution in addition to management and administration aspects required to successfully deliver project completion on time, within budget, and meeting the client’s expectations. The balanced curriculum of 120 credit hours includes two 300-hour internships, allowing students to learn onsite and apply what they learn in class to a real-world project.
"The NKU Construction Management program has enabled me to understand how buildings are built and operate. In my current role, I analyze the financial data of real estate investments and still utilize the education and career knowledge that I learned through the Construction Management program. The internships and professors had a major impact on my career and personal life. The internships allowed me to work with the largest construction management companies in Cincinnati. The professors had such a vested interest - they were there for me during the program and well after. The professors had me thinking on a much grander scale, and I’m forever grateful for that."
