About

The Project Management program of Northwestern University is designed to prepare technically qualified individuals for leadership roles in the construction, operation, and management of major civil and environmental engineering projects.

Overview

The Project Management program of Northwestern University draws the expertise of renowned faculty practitioners, this program combines education in essential concepts of civil and architectural engineering design with the functional concepts of business management and behavioral science. Our graduates emerge as versatile and technically oriented professionals capable of directing major public and private infrastructure projects in today's increasingly complicated managerial environment.

Whereas many MS programs focus on the technical aspects of civil and architectural engineering design and construction, the MPM program encourages students to build on their technical backgrounds by emphasizing the practical business and management perspectives needed to effectively synthesize these operations. Graduates of the MPM program are well equipped to take a more high level view of a project and plan, coordinate, control, and evaluate the activities of diverse specialists within a project framework.

Specializations

The following five specializations are available in the MPM program, depending on the interest and experience of the participant:

  • A/E/C Business Management
  • Construction Management
  • Real Estate Development
  • Sustainability
  • Transportation Management

Career paths

Graduates of the MPM program are prepared to enter the work force in a wide variety of areas. In addition to the areas represented by the five specializations in the program, graduates have utilized their education to work in many different peripheral industries and to develop their own companies. More than two decades of experience has shown that companies value the skills of our MPM graduates and their ability to become productive employees, and leaders.
