Program Core Values
Our core value is centered on providing students and the global construction community with the highest quality construction management education possible. We are committed to ensuring that the educational opportunities we provide for the students we serve will prepare them with the knowledge and tools that will enable them to become successful professional constructors and managers of the construction process.
The Program supports the moral and ethical principles as they relate to the construction industry. MSCM graduates value integrity as the foundation of building professional and personal relationships.
Diversity & Equity
The Program seeks to build a diverse and equitable learning environment, where students support one another to get the most out of the Program and build a community with diverse, people, ideas, and perspectives. We accept students from various backgrounds such as Civil Engineering, Architecture, as well as from other disciplines that have experience or an interest in the built environment. Students, who have a background that is a different background from construction, yet would like to switch to become a Manager of the Construction Process, are welcome to apply to the Program.
The Program aims to build an environment that encourages innovation for faculty and students. The Program supports the quote “If you’re not changing, you’re not learning and growing.” and the MSCM Program has been continuously improving to adapt to the rapidly changing construction industry.
A Great Place for International Students
The Program hosts a diverse student population that welcomes and includes international students. With Jefferson’s orientation and the MSCM orientation and advising, we are looking forward to making the transition from a different country and culture as flawless as possible, by introducing opportunities to be engaged in national and social interactions.
The MSCM program is designated as a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) program. With STEM designation, international students are eligible to receive a 24-month STEM Optional Practical Training (OPT) extension to the standard 12-month OPT. Visit Study in the States for more information. With this opportunity, international students are eligible to receive internships during the program and get jobs after graduation to practice their construction knowledge.
