Overview

A Highly Ranked Engineering University

Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) is a highly regarded regional university that offers programs in engineering, business, mathematics, and nursing. Both "The Princeton Review" and "U.S. News and World Report" rank MSOE among the best in the Midwest. "Forbes" places MSOE among the top 9% of universities in the nation for engineering programs.

Milwaukee School of Engineering also consistently ranks as a best value on the "U.S. News and World Report" survey of Midwestern universities without Ph.D. programs.

This highly-ranked university offers a Master of Science in Construction and Business Management degree program.

The Master's Program in Construction and Business Management

Students learn the leadership tools necessary to compete in the ever-changing and highly competitive construction management environment.

Courses are focused on business development, new and emerging technologies for construction and project delivery systems, and executive administration of construction firms. Faculty members bring their extensive industry experience to the classroom, and most have Ph.D. degrees.

Program Details

This master's degree program was created in conjunction with the Rader School of Business and the Civil and Architectural Engineering and Construction Management Department. The degree targets professionals who are working in, or have experience in, the construction industry. It teaches students the leadership tools necessary to compete in the ever-changing and highly competitive construction management environment. It provides students with advanced skills and understanding in construction project administration and business management.

MSOE follows an academic quarter system. The 45 quarter credits required in this program equate to approximately 30 semester credits of contact and class time.

The Milwaukee School of Engineering Advantage

Students enrolled in the Master of Science in Construction and Business Management program at MSOE receive a practical, applied, professional graduate education that allows them to immediately apply new knowledge to work challenges both during the program and at program completion. Graduate program alumni show high career achievement, and move into many leadership positions that range from Chief Executive Officer to Project Manager. A longitudinal study of mid-career MSOE graduates shows that they continue to outperform their cohorts in both salary and job satisfaction.

Small class sizes and professor-led classes are another component of the MSOE advantage. Students enjoy great access to professors, allowing for greater feedback and improving students' mastery of core concepts. In addition, the online blended format and tech-savvy faculty members make it easy to communicate with professors via email, Skype, text, and other platforms.

A Business Background in the Classroom

MSOE faculty members have relevant, extensive experience outside the classroom and laboratory, and have often worked in industry for many years before coming to MSOE to teach. Professors share their experience and expertise in the classroom, and also help students apply new learning to address business problems during class-related field projects. The close relationships between MSOE faculty members and regional industry help maintain a current, relevant curriculum, while providing a "living laboratory" in which students apply new skills and knowledge.

In addition to significant industry experience, the majority of MSOE graduate faculty members hold doctoral degrees in specialized fields of study that enhance their ability to share information in the classroom.

A Modern Campus

Milwaukee School of Engineering's 20 acre campus is located in the east shore neighborhood of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, just minutes from Lake Michigan. Campus features include an athletic field and easy-access parking.

"The Princeton Review" has named MSOE as one of the nation's most environmentally friendly colleges. The solar panels atop the Campus Center develop renewable clean energy.

MSOE's graduates enjoy the highest average starting and mid-career salaries of any Wisconsin university according to Payscale Inc. Affordable Colleges Online ranks MSOE in the top 1% of U.S. colleges as measured by return on investment (ROI). MSOE degree-holders out-earn non-degree holders by at least one million dollars.
