Professional recognition

This programme is part of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Partnership Portfolio.

This programme was developed in response to the growing demand from the construction and property industry for flexible professionals capable of strategic thinking and a creative response to volatile economic conditions. Planning and controlling the allocation of resources, and the detailed matching of design and production to the needs of the market for built space, are at the core of the construction and property industries.

This programme enables students to develop analytical, technical and managerial skills and prepares them for leadership roles in the construction and property industries. The structure allows consideration of both the theory and applications of economics, finance and management in the context of construction projects and portfolios. The emphasis of this programme is on the presentation and communication of workable solutions to complex problems.

Outcomes

The aims of the programme are to develop:

  • A knowledge of management economics in the construction and property industries
  • Management skills, techniques and abilities required for the management of construction
  • Abilities to generate management solutions to construction problems.

 Facilities 

The university has invested £76 million in a new building to house the campus library, TV studios and academic facilities for disciplines including architecture, design and construction. Stockwell Street, where the programme will be delivered, is a short walk from the university's buildings on the Old Royal College site.
