Construction Economics and Management

The course is designed to equip students with the economics and management skills to analyse the kinds of problems that will confront senior managers, policy advisers and decision-makers in any branch of the construction industry. The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars and group work on case studies, exercises and problems. Lectures include industry guest speakers.
