Thrive in a growing industry
The construction industry is booming, with companies, both nationally and internationally, calling out for qualified project managers to spearhead their latest developments. According to the 2013 Project Management Talent Gap Report, the Project Management Institute (PMI) expects the creation of 15.7 million new project management roles globally by 2020.
To help online students take advantage of these growing opportunities, Nottingham Trent University is offering a comprehensive online MSc in Construction Project Management. The course is designed to equip mid-career professionals, or recent graduates, with practical skills that can be applied straightaway in real working environments.
“I regularly use the skills I learned on the MSc because the range of modules on the course links in perfectly with the industry and consulting environment. Not only is the construction knowledge important, but additional skills learned through non-construction related modules are arguably the most critical.”
