The MSc Construction Project Management course at the University of Bolton is designed for ambitious construction graduates, or senior level professionals with existing experience in the industry. Focusing on professional and personal development, our master’s training will help you reach your potential and take the next step up in your career.
Here are some of the reasons why personal development plays such a vital role in fostering highly successful construction project managers.
There’s a skills shortage in the UK
Project managers are on the list of in-demand workers within the construction industry. While it’s a candidate’s market and jobs are plentiful, it’s also important to upskill if you want a competitive edge. Through focused professional development, you can help the industry fill vital skills gaps while also boosting your earning power.
The industry is changing fast
Technological advancements such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation mean that things are evolving quickly. In such a fast-paced industry, it’s essential for construction project managers to develop their skills to remain relevant. Postgraduate study is a great way of making sure your skills are up-to-date.
Great leaders are needed now
Data from the Office of National Statistics reveals an ageing workforce, with 20% of UK construction workers over fifty, and 15% now in their sixties. Fresh talent is needed now in order to repair the skills shortage and build great leaders of the future. Our course arms you with the management, assessment and problem-solving qualities required to oversee projects, as well as lead and train others.
