Despite turbulence in the global economy, the construction industry continues to grow with revenue expected to reach US$15 trillion by 2025. Specialist project managers are in high demand to help negotiate projects through the inevitable hurdles that can arise due to a host of issues ranging from time constraints and safety and workforce considerations to legal issues, government regulations and environmental concerns. Fully accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), this course will be of interest if you are a graduate in or with previous construction-related employment and if you are seeking a senior project management position within the industry. Project management is now a well-established discipline within the construction industry, applied to projects of all sizes and levels of complexity. On this course, you’ll learn the modern management skills, techniques, and systems to successfully deliver a project from inception to completion, and how to meet a client’s requirements within the constraints of the external environment. Our central London location and numerous industry contacts, which include client organisations, public and private Tier 1 consultants and contractors and Tier 2 consultants, contractors and suppliers, enable us to invite practising professionals to contribute regularly to the course and to give guest lectures. You'll have the chance to apply your skills and knowledge to real-life practical problems through case studies. When possible, we also visit construction sites in London, so you can see how developers overcome some of the issues associated with developing in a challenging environment like the centre of a large metropolis, such as traffic and transportation.
