Earn A Construction Management and Business Administration Degree
Unique Program Prepares Graduates for Management Career
What makes Florida Tech’s degree in construction management different from other university programs is that the fundamentals of an MBA degree are integrated into the curriculum. In fact, the Florida Tech curriculum in construction business management contains the equivalent of an Associate of Arts Degree in Business Administration. This gives students a very sound foundation of both construction and business skills.
This combination is sometimes referred to as the “FastTrack“ MBA program because it allows the graduates of the bachelor’s degree in construction management to receive an MBA in just one additional year of study, vs. the two years normally required for the MBA. This aspect of the Florida Tech construction business management program makes it a very focused business-oriented major for students interested in construction and business oriented fields such as land development. Thus the Florida Tech construction management curriculum combines essential business skills with vital engineering know-how to prepare undergraduates to enter the field of construction immediately upon graduation, without any additional training.
Having a business administration degree in combination with a construction management degree gives Florida Tech graduates a very competitive advantage in the job market. In addition, should a graduate change their mindand choose to enter a field other than construction business management they can do so with the confidence that they have acquired the basic business skills necessary to manage almost any organization.
Finally, should the graduate decide to own their own business in construction, the Florida Tech construction management degree program provides the skills needed to gain licensure as a general contractor or a professional in construction business management. In fact, for licensure as a General Contractor the Florida Tech degree counts for three years of “on-the-job” experience and allows graduates to qualify to take the General Contractor’s License Exam (in Florida) with only one year of job experience vs. the four years of experience normally required for licensure.
Employers that have recruited Florida Tech construction business management students for internships and full time careers include such nationally recognized firms as: Bechtel, Kiewit, CH2MHill, Brown and Root, Lane Construction, Disney, Lockheed, NASA, WELBRO Building Corp. and Woodruff Construction Company.
