Program Overview

Students who have limited time to dedicate to a degree program may be interested in Lawrence Technological University’s Graduate Certificate in Architectural Management. The essence of architectural management is to ensure that work on a project is cost effective, to achieve a balance between profitability and design quality.

Architectural management can be divided into two subcategories, which are project management and office management. Office management involves the allocation and financing of resources, principally premises, trained staff and computer systems, and on establishing and charging appropriate fees for the services rendered. Project management focuses on timescales, developing a design from initial concept to working drawings, and managing the construction process.

This 15-credit post professional certificate consists of six class: Construction Management, Law for Architects, Practice Management, Human Resource Management, Leading Organizational Change, and Topics in Management Accounting and Finance. The overall intent of this certificate program is to provide a concentrated course of study and a recognized credential to those who aspire to firm and/or project management in the design professions.

For an architectural manager, some of the duties that come with the position are to plan, coordinate, and direct activities in architecture and engineering, including research and development in these fields.
