About MBA in ACM

MBA in Advanced Construction Management (MBA in ACM)

Programme Duration: 2 Years Full Time

ACM is an interdisciplinary MBA programme offered by School of Construction which builds upon the concepts and practices of management, engineering, architecture, planning, law, information technology, social and behavioural sciences and combines theory with application.

The programme helps the technically qualified engineers, architects and planners to develop the requisite managerial skills and further sharpen the technical skills for managing and executing the complex and large construction engineering projects. The curriculum is a judicious blend of theoretical and applied courses both in general management and construction management accompanied with practical experience and project work. The theoretical courses aim to improve the students’ understanding of fundamental concepts and relationships that characterise the changing world in which managers must operate. Applied courses, which occupy the bulk of the students’ time, link the theoretical studies to practical problems in construction, infrastructure and real estate development projects. Research-oriented courses develop the ability of scientific analysis of a problem and report writing skills. Computer application skills and knowledge in managerial decision-making are imparted through special courses and workshops/seminars.

The programme is designed to prepare NICMAR University graduates for undertaking professional responsibilities demanding high proficiency in applications of the latest information technology, people management, project finance, international markets in construction projects. The curriculum is reviewed periodically to incorporate the latest advances in Construction, Real Estate, Infrastructure and Project (CRIP) industry and to build a strong competence in diversified areas.
