Construction has become a complex industry involving numerous disciplines and stakeholders. In order to provide students with better preparation, the curriculum is designed to accommodate classes in law, business, finance, architecture, industrial relations, and other technical construction management courses. There is also a focus on the international experience which exposes students to effective means and methods of construction and encourages flexibility and innovation. Moreover, students in the program meet with leaders in the construction management field who share their own industry experiences with our students. These leaders come to the University of Illinois as guest speakers and represent the top construction companies in the construction industry.
