MBA in Architectural and Construction Management - a collaborative alliance between a leading global business school and the RIBA.
The RIBA (NW) Architectural and Construction Management MBA will enable you to combine and then apply the expertise provided by the Bradford Management School and the RIBA. Bradford Management School is the longest established university business school offering the MBA award which is currently ranked within the top 10 business schools in the UK by the Financial Times.
The MBA in Architectural and Construction Management will feature specific modules in The Legal Environment of Business, Law and sustainability in the Built Environment and Project and Practice Management in Architectural Construction. These are areas that RIBA has identified as preferable in a dynamic and diverse field that juxtaposes building utility and creative flair within a business context. These RIBA prescribed modules will sit alongside the modules that make up the AMBA and EQUIS accredited Bradford MBA. When combined these elements will provide architects and those in construction with a solid foundation in business administration from which the economic and creative potential of design and construction projects can be realised.
Dr. Sarah Dixon, Dean of the Management School:
‘I am fully convinced that there is significant value in the uptake of management and legal education based around practical and relevant real life situations. The study of management and business often
offers up a wider perspective on how expertise and capital can be leveraged to best effect. I am especially pleased to see a partnership established between the RIBA and Bradford University Management School.’
Geoff Alsop, Chairman of RIBA North West:
‘The construction industry faces difficult times and an
uncertain future. One of the issues that has arisen is that architects
have automatically focused on what they do best: Design. This leads
in certain instances to a shift in focus away from the fee earning business side of Architecture. Management, legal and administrative processes that enable architects to produce excellence in design and execution must be incorporated into an architect’s skill set.’
