RICS finds sufficient surveying content in the Manchester Business School course

The RICS has given accreditation to Manchester Business School’s blended learning MBA for construction executives.

The three year course, recognised by building industry professions and international employers, offers collaboration with other professions, such as engineers, architects and project managers.

Its format of self-study and face-to-face workshops mean students can study on the programme without putting their careers on hold.

Workshops are held at the Manchester Business School or at its Worldwide Middle East centre in Dubai.

Vivien Small, head of education and qualification standards at the RICS, said: “We are delighted to announce that there is sufficient surveying related content in the MBA for construction executives for the course to receive accreditation by the RICS with the University of Manchester.

“The RICS also has a growing involvement with the Middle East, so I am sure our relationship with Manchester Business School will be mutually beneficial,” adds Small.”

The course was developed in partnership with ConstructionSkills and through consultation with industry bodies the RICS, CIOB and CEBE.

Applicants should normally have at least three years business experience and a good first degree.
