One of the largest and most influential markets in the world today, the construction industry is projected to grow from US$8.5 trillion in 2015 to US$10.3 trillion in 2020. In the UK alone, it contributed £103 billion in economic output in 2014 and accounted for 6% – or 2.1 million – of all jobs.
Accompanying this growth is the commensurate demand for construction management, with professional input required at all stages of building work – from concept to detailed design, construction and maintenance. This course, which is currently accredited by the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), aims to prepare you to work towards chartered status and roles in construction management wherever in the world you choose.
