Bachelor of Science Construction Management + Master of Business Administration (3+2)

At Colorado Mesa University the Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Management and Masters of Business Administration 3+2 program is designed to prepare students with knowledge and skills required to be successful managers and leaders in a challenging and rapidly changing construction industry.

Construction Management is the discipline of planning, organizing, directing and controlling the labor, material and equipment required to construct and deliver a completed residential, commercial, heavy civil or industrial construction project to a private or public owner. Construction management is a team effort with each participant working to achieve the project objectives of delivering the project on or ahead of schedule, at or under budget, achieving the required level of standards and quality, maintaining a safe project site, and having a minimal impact on the natural environment.

We are affiliated with Western Colorado Community College (WCCC) which offers an Associates of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in Construction Technology. The Construction Management program has been articulated with WCCC's Construction Technology program, allowing a student with an earned A.A.S. degree to easily transition into the bachelors of science degree in construction management at Colorado Mesa University. For more information about the Construction Management Program please see Construction Management Program Information.

This program is also the undergraduate component of the 3+2 program, in which students can earn a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management and a Master of Business Administration (MBA, as described below) in five years. Through careful planning and coordination students can complete their four-year degree and their graduate degree simultaneously.  For more information please see 3 + 2 MBA Program Information.
The Colorado Mesa University Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree is a challenging program designed to prepare graduates for the changing business world. The degree is awarded after successful completion of 36-45 semester hours of rigorous study. The program is designed to provide the student with a broad background in business while allowing the student to focus on a specified area of study, if desired. To this end, students acquire knowledge of management operations; an appreciation of the interrelationships involved in business; an understanding of the economic, political and social environment in which businesses function; and behavioral skills that are essential in the manager’s role in the implementation of business decisions. The MBA program endeavors to provide an atmosphere conducive to the development of each student’s ability to think in a creative manner and to effectively problem solve. The program makes extensive use of seminars, group projects, case studies and independent research. More information about our MBA Program can be found at MBA Program Information.
