MS in Building Construction Management Online

Building Construction Management Online

"Uninterrupted experience is important with the firm I work for, and going to graduate school full-time was financially impossible.  The Purdue ProSTAR program was a perfect match.  It allowed for continuous employment while studying for an advanced degree."

Go from orientation to graduation in just 24 months with ProSTAR’s MS in Building Construction Management distance education program. Our flexible curriculum gives you knowledge you can put into practice on the job right away.

Each fall semester starts with an intensive, three-day session on Purdue’s campus that allows you to meet your fellow distance education students, on-campus students and instructors. Once you’re back home, you’ll take classes in a virtual environment, using a computer, webcam and hands-free microphone/earphone to listen to lectures, view presentations and participate in discussions—a real-time learning experience.
