Master the Skills to Manage Complex Projects

The Leadership in Construction Management MicroCred for College Credit Certificate from LSU Online & Continuing Education will enhance students’ understanding of leadership and help them strengthen the skills necessary to be effective managers in the construction field. Students will explore a comprehensive mix of leadership concepts and best practices in the industry. They will also learn to apply practical strategies to lead construction teams, solve problems, and make informed decisions.

The series consists of three 8-week courses that cover all aspects of leadership development, including the ethics and conduct expected within the industry. Professionals will be able to identify the skills and traits required of a leader, apply leadership principles and best practices, and develop their leadership styles. This leadership series touches all areas of construction, including residential, commercial, industrial, and heavy highway. Upon completion of the three-course series (see list below), students will receive an LSU MicroCred digital badge that can be used for online résumés, personal websites, or social media. In addition, these are college courses and can be fully transferred into LSU’s Online Bachelor of Science in Construction Management (BSCM). These 8-week courses also can be used for continuing education units/credits required by some certifications and licenses.
