Sherman, Senior Vice President and Provost at New England Institute of Technology (NEIT), announced that the college will offer a fully online Master of Science Degree program in Construction Management beginning October, 2015. The online format is designed for working construction-related professionals seeking to advance their careers through advanced technical courses and an integrated management core. The curriculum blends modern construction management theory, best-practices, and technical skills with the contemporary business management principles that drive 21st century organizational performance.
Candidates for this master’s level program must possess a Bachelor of Architecture Degree or a Bachelor of Science Degree in Architecture, Architectural Engineering Technology, Civil Engineering, Civil Engineering Technology, Interior Design, Construction Management, Planning, Business, Finance, or Management or a degree in a related field from an accredited institution.
