Construction Management Programs in the United States

At AppSheet, a huge part of our mission is to help professionals excel in their careers. No matter your industry, we provide the platform to help you work better and innovate on the job. Our blog also serves as a resource for industry trends, workplace inspiration, and ideas for career continuing education.  

This post is the first in a series where we'll index popular continuing education programs by industry. This week, we share a database of construction management programs in the United States. If you want to start a construction management career or expand on your established career in construction, start your research of programs right here.

In typical AppSheet fashion, we’ve converted the database into an easy-to-use application. Explore construction programs by state or use the map tab to locate a construction school near you. You can also search the app to pull up programs by degree type (certificate, associate, bachelor, or even PhD) or keyword. Click into the program to find a description, address, and link to the program website.

In addition to construction management programs, the database includes information for other construction degrees such as those in green buildings, building construction technology, sustainable construction, building inspection, and more.

Check out the app embedded below. Click on the "details" tab or visit the construction program app page to copy it for use on your own phone, table, or laptop. We'll continuously update this app, so check back if you don't find the right program for you!
