Master of Professional Studies in Real Estate

Development and Construction Project Management

Course Description:

This course helps students master the art and science of managing projects for development and construction. Taking the project from inception to an on time, under-budget closeout, the tools and techniques for successfully leading an eclectic group of consultants and subcontractors, managing budgets, conflicts and schedules are studied in detail. Going far beyond the secrets of successful scheduling, this course adapts the best practices of managing large projects from the infrastructure, IT, and heavy industrial manufacturing industries, and applies them to real estate development and construction projects.

Upon successful completion of this course, students will know the industry best practices for creation and management of the project team, document management and recordkeeping, scheduling, cost control and value engineering, procurement research and negotiations, subcontract management and administration. Students will also be able to apply effective techniques for managing a construction or development project within the framework of construction law, AIA contracts and subcontracts, and ethical business practices.
