Welcome from our Head of Department

Since taking over as head of department in February 2017, I am proud to say that our staff numbers have grown by fifty percent and our student numbers have risen as well. We remain a centre of excellence in project management, constructive economics and management, and infrastructure finance and investment, while building strengths in affordable housing, climate change economics and finance, and strategic management of projects and project firms. As the Research Excellence Framework (REF2021) approaches, we are also excited to announce that we are now one of the most research-intensive units in The Bartlett. 

I hope you keep in touch!

About our alumni

I was hired straight away after I graduated. During the programme, I learnt a lot about organisations, communication, business strategies and leadership styles. It was that in-depth study and analysis that helped me become more conscious of the decisions that I make on the job everyday and a bit more conscientious about the people that I work with. It's been a tremendous help throughout my career. - Ruby Mehdi, Project Manager for AECOM Abu Dhabi. Graduate of MSc Project Enterprise Management 2012

Eminent alumni of our School include the directors, partners and founders of some of the most successful construction, project management, developer and property firms in the world today, as well as policy-makers and journalists. 

We believe in fostering and supporting our students so it doesn’t stop when they complete their degree or doctorate. It continues throughout their career through our alumni network. We offer many ways for them to return and inspire the next generations.
