If you’re a general contractor or project manager, or seeking such a title in the construction industry, it’s the perfect time to consider an MBA with a concentration in construction management. Ball State’s construction management concentration is a specialized business degree that supports a massive industry.

That industry is a driving force in our national economy. Consider this: the construction industry is composed of more than 680,000 employers, who employ more than seven million employees and who build almost $1.3 trillion worth of structure each year. That’s according to the Associated General Contractors (AGC).

Job Outlook

Meanwhile, the job outlook for construction managers is upbeat, says the Bureau of Labor Statistics, after forecasting in 2018 a job growth of 10 percent by 2028.

Or you might take construction management courses as electives that you find useful as part of the general MBA track.

Competitive Cost

Whether you bring a business degree to the program or not, the cost for the MBA will range from $20,000 to $22,000 if you’re an Indiana resident. Cost varies depending on your prior credits, whether you take courses online or on campus, or with a part- or full-time course schedule.

When compared to other top-ranked MBA programs, Ball State’s MBA program costs significantly less. We encourage you to compare.
