MBA in Construction – Postgraduate European Common Studies
in Construction Project Management
Project Number: 2013-1-PL1-LEO05-37822
Project Type: Transfer of Innovation
MBAIC project is related to creation of postraduate studies in construction project management. Didactic materials, methodology, organisational scheme and system for qualifications comparison will be developed.
The main task of the project is to deepen Directive’s 89/48/EWG ideas, which will lead to creation of proper European system of comparison, certification and mutual recognition of managerial qualifications in construction. Project based on the successfully finished CLOEMC I and II projects (PL/06/B/F/PP/174014, 2009-1-PL1-LEO05-05016) set of 13 already created manuals for Construction Managers’ Library. CLOEMC manuals are commercially published on Polish market, in respond to demand from construction engineers. As a result of the proposed project new postgraduate studies for construction managers will be created forming common platform of managerial knowledge. This base of knowledge will extend the foundations of recognition and certification of managerial qualifications in construction, in EU. This Project is based on European Directive nr 89/48/EWG on regulated professions in respect to scope of recognition, maintain of high standard in professional disciplines, promotion and certification of qualifications by international associations and organizations – from construction sector.
There is a need to create didactic system, in the form of Postgraduate study, as a follow-up activity, promoting recognition of qualifications and accreditation of construction managers in the European Union. Results from previous projects are put into practice by i.e. creation of Polish Association of Building Managers and its close cooperation with The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and The Association of European Building Surveyors and Construction Experts (AEEBC, creator of EURBE Card – European Building Expert), what assures European dimension of the project. Foreseen didactic materials, methodology and organization scheme will become a new tool allowing promotion, certification, comparison and recognition of construction engineers and managers competence on European, domestic and sector level. The postgraduate studies will allow process of standardization (in all 15 countries associated in AEEBC, and other also) of certification process of engineers applying for the title of EurBE. Partner Universities, as well as CIOB and PSMB will be responsible for preparation of project products later checked and approved by professional associations. Results of the project will improve didactic process and qualifications recognition of EU managers in construction.
Recognition, transparency, certification
Open and distance learning
The project objectives are as follows: 1. Creation of new studies programmes and choice / preparation of didactic materials (Innovation: Universities create common study program which will be the base for common postgraduate diploma), 2.Creation of the lectures methodology (interactive way of teaching with use of internet), 3. Creation of the studies organizational scheme (blended learning – first lectures and meetings, as well as exams – at the University – face to face, rest of lectures – on Internet), 4.
