NPR Article on the bright future for construction management students

25January2007

NPR has a good article entitled, “As Construction Booms, So Do New Jobs” that reports on opportunities in the industry. You can also find an audio link on the site that goes into a bit more detail than the written article. A brief snippet of the article regarding salary levels can be found below:

“College students — and their parents — could be forgiven for not knowing about a major called “Construction Management.” But construction — roughly 5 percent of the nation’s economy — is booming. And insiders say the industry is decades behind similar fields in having enough highly educated and trained managers to run companies.

As a result, schools like the Wentworth Institute of Technology are putting new emphasis on the degree, touting a voracious job market and a median starting salary of $46,000. Graduates say that figure often ranges from $70,000 to $100,000 after five to 10 years”
