NYU Certificate in Construction Management Offers a Solid Foundation
The president of KR&R in New York, Barry Grummer has been working in the construction and contracting business for more than three decades. He has extensive experience with waterproofing, masonry, and overall business management, and he leverages this knowledge to lead KR&R. Barry Grummer also relies on his education, as he is certified in all types of materials and roofing and holds a construction management certificate from NYU.
The graduate certificate in construction management at NYU is designed for students who have already earned a bachelor’s degree. It is a great way for professionals to gain a solid foundation in construction management or simply improve their credentials. Students of the graduate certificate in construction management curriculum complete a subset of courses from NYU’s related master’s degree program. This allows them to apply their certificate credits to the master’s program for further study. However, the foundational knowledge taught in the certificate courses is plenty for students to begin their professional practice.
NYU’s graduate certificate in construction management teaches students about standards and basic practices in the industry. All certificate students must complete at least six courses that cover such topics as the construction process, legal principles, and construction cost estimating. All courses are taught by reputable construction management professionals, which gives classes a stronger connection to the real-world profession and helps students better understand how construction management really works.
