SUMMARY

Choosing to study Construction Management is not only a valuable choice, but typically an obligatory first step for undergrads trying to pursue a career as an estates manager, an estimator, or a building services engineer. Interestingly, construction management is a fairly common choice being the 124th most popular major. In the last year, there were 2,576 construction management graduates. In-state tuition for construction management at private universities is, on average, 2.6 times more spendy than their public fellows.

With only 76 schools having programs for construction management you may have a more finite list of the institutions you can choose from. If you're looking to immerse yourself with other construction management students, consider institutions in Louisiana which have more undergraduates admitted to construction management than any other state. More generally, the best region to major in construction management is in the Southeast region with Louisiana State University and Agricultural & Mechanical College, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, and Everglades University best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection for the best conference to study construction management is the Southeastern Conference with Louisiana State University and Agricultural & Mechanical College representing the conference. That said, our belief is that the best university for construction management is California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo, and here you can find our comprehensive list for the best colleges.

The 'best' school is not necessarily the best school for every student. There might be a bunch more factors to consider when selecting institution. Things such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food might definitely impact your inclinations on which school to attend. Here at authority.org, we've weighed the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which construction management college boasts the top campus, the winner is Arizona State University-Tempe. If you are very interested in which college has the top campus, we have an entire list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through professor reviews, government databases, student reviews, and more so we can compare each major in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can explore our well researched list for the colleges with the best student life and from that list, our choice for the university with the best student life for construction management is Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Are you curious why? Keep scrolling to learn more about our top recommendations. Many of our conclusions will probably shock you.

If price is a significant deciding factor in your decision on where to go to college, you might be cautious about Drexel University. Drexel University is the most expensive college for construction management, at least regarding out of state students. We have a page for the most expensive schools that could put the expense of Drexel University into perspective. For more context, you may be interested to know that construction management is the 340th most expensive program in the nation, with an average associated cost of $20,100. On a broader scale, the most costly state for construction management nationally is South Carolina demonstrated with a tuition of $37,110 at the main college in the state Clemson University. Even more broadly, the most costly region of the country for construction management is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Wentworth Institute of Technology with a cost of $34,970, Roger Williams University with a cost of $32,789, and Norwich University with a cost of $39,234.

Our cheapest region for construction management is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Brigham Young University-Idaho with a cost of $4,208, Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790, and Weber State University with a cost of $14,973. In better news, the most affordable college for construction management is Brigham Young University-Provo. Our full list of the most affordable universities can be found here.

In-state students can anticipate paying in the neighborhood of $10,300 for a degree in construction management. That cost inflates significantly to a median of $22,300 for the out-of-state public-school student. As such, you might be interested in our selection for the college with the best value for construction management: Drexel University. Here you will see our comprehensive list about the colleges we believe to be the best value in general. That being said, this discussion is based on out-of-state tuition costs. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition is considered, but as we do not know what state(s) you might qualify for in-state tuition, we are approaching this discussion through out-of-state tuition costs.

Earnings for construction management students vary a lot, but within two-years of finishing the degree students will often make around $72,100. While there can be much variation in pay; highest paid earners can enjoy pay up to $110,800. Even right out of school, the lowest earning jobs within the construction management field make $46,900, which isn't that bad. The top earning grads from construction management come from Milwaukee School of Engineering and if you want to find the colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The general diversity of construction management lies near the bottom, coming in only the 5th percentile of all majors. The school with the most composite diversity for construction management is Drexel University and here you can find our general list of the schools with the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of the Construction Management major ranks only within the 96th percentile compared to all other majors. Racial diversity is even less in the 9th percentile. White collegians compose the largest share, 79%, of scholars studying construction management. Additionally, 89% of undergraduates pursuing a construction management major are men.

We have insufficient professors data for construction management to make the conclusions we normally would have made in this sentence. If we incorporate information other than basic rankings it becomes clear that the college with comprehensively the best professors for construction management is Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. You will find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology of the best overall professors here, along with many of the best professors in the country.

Finally, the hardest school to get into for construction management is California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we have an extensive list of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, we do hope you understand that approaching college with a lens mainly shaped by superlatives could cause issues. We encourage you to explore our other pages on individual topics and read some of our informative background articles on important things to consider as you continue your university search.
