Course summary

Course summary

Commercial managers play a key role in the commercial and financial success of construction projects, by monitoring activities to ensure projects are delivered on time, on budget and on quality. Our innovative course delivers the people and project management skills, professional and technical knowledge required to tackle the technical, organisational, commercial, legal and financial issues that can arise.

Fully accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), this course will be of interest if you are a graduate in or with previous construction-related employment and if you are seeking a senior position in the field of commercial management.

It will develop your awareness of the importance of construction projects to clients, and the context within which projects are procured and undertaken, the economic, financial, corporate, legal and regulatory constraints. You'll gain greater knowledge and understanding of the theories, concepts, principles, techniques, and intellectual and practical skills needed for effective procurement, financial control, risk assessment, supply chain management and more.

Course structure

This course aims to provide you with the knowledge and understanding to organise, plan and manage construction, financial and contractual arrangements, whether working in-house for a construction company or as part of a construction management consultancy. It provides a challenging, stimulating and professionally relevant course of study which is directly related to the procurement and financial management of construction projects within this rapidly changing industry.

Careers

Due to the complexity of valuing and costing construction projects, commercial management has developed into a technical discipline, most undertaken by quantity surveyors. Often quantity surveyors progress to become commercial managers, with responsibility for a commercial team and reporting to the project manager. This professionally accredited course will provide you with the principal skills needed in a wide range of commercial-related roles in construction companies, government agencies, consultancy and project management. With further education and experience, you can progress towards full professional qualification with the RICS and CIOB.
