Frequently Asked Questions

Many universities around the world offer master’s or MBA’s related to the construction industry. However, Spain is a great option to choose to study your programme because of the presence of some of the largest construction companies in the world. If you choose to study at Universidad Europea, you can complete internships with companies like ACS, FCC and Sacyr.

Yes. Studying an MBA in Construction Management is worth it because you will not also gain specific industry knowledge, but also work on key skills like communication, leadership and teamwork, to be able to lead in the sector once you graduate.

Both construction management and civil engineering are important and valuable fields, but they have different focuses and career paths.

Civil engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the built environment, including structures such as buildings, roads, bridges, and water supply systems. Construction management focuses more on the management and coordination of construction projects, including planning, budgeting, scheduling, and supervising construction work.

In terms of which is better, it really depends on your interests and career goals. If you enjoy the technical aspects of engineering and want to be involved in designing and building structures, then civil engineering may be a better fit for you, so you could consider the Degree in Civil Engineering at Universidad Europea. On the other hand, if you are more interested in the management and coordination of construction projects, then construction management may be a better fit.

The MBA in International Construction Management at Universidad Europea is the only specialised MBA in the construction sector in Spain and is aimed at engineers and architects. The study plan takes on a two-pronged approach – you can choose a research path or professional path.

Choose the professional path if you want to do an in-company internship, and the research path if you want to start a PhD.
