Construction Electives

In order to tailor their degree programs to their interests, Construction Management students have the opportunity to take one Construction elective course. This elective should be at the 300 or 400 level and relevant to the student’s anticipated professional career. Below is a list of suggested courses.  (These may not be offered each semester.  If there is a particular course you would like to take, it would be a good idea to monitor the schedule each semester so that you know in which semester the course will be offered.)

Management Electives

In the Construction Management degree program, there is one required management course and two elective management courses.  The required course to meet ACCE accreditation requirements is Mgt 310, Legal Issues for Managers.  In addition, you must choose two 300 level management for courses for which you have the prerequisites.  The choices for the two courses are:  Mgt 306, 308, 324, 328, or 300.

Minor in Management

The requirements for the BS Construction Management degree fulfill the requirements for a Minor in Management described in the UNM catalog:  http://bba.mgt.unm.edu/minors/minors.asp.  

The Management Minor from the Anderson Schools of Management requires 18 hours. 9 hours must come from Category1 which would be: ACCT 2110, Math 1350, and Econ 2120, all required in the CM degree program. 9 hours must come from Category 2 which would include ACCT 2120 and Mgt 310, both required in the CM degree program. You must choose one additional elective from Mgt 306, 308, 324, 328, or 300 to satisfy both the CM degree and the Management Minor.  The second Mgt elective is your choice.

You must receive grades of C- or better in all courses applied in the minor.

You should ALWAYS work with your academic advisor to choose appropriate management courses.
