The total value of the Construction Management program depends not only on the depth of content and quality of instruction, but also the diversity and quality of the students themselves. The admission requirements are designed to attract a broad spectrum of professionals. Applicants must have a baccalaureate degree with at least a 3.0 average from a college or university accredited by a regional or national agency. Students not satisfying the grade average requirement may receive admission on a provisional basis subject to interview and recommendation by the program director. No GRE or other exam score will be required from applicants whose undergraduate degree or graduate degree is from a U.S. college or university accredited by a regional or national agency. Should the college or university not be an accredited U.S. institution, a GRE score will be required. In addition to meeting the academic requirements, prospective students must demonstrate a long-term commitment towards personal and professional development through recommendations, professional experience, and a personal interview with the program director.
