BYU offers a bachelor’s degree in Construction and Facilities Management (CFM) with two tracks: Facilities Management and Construction Management. A thesis-based master’s degree in Construction and Facilities Management is also offered. The BYU CFM program also offers a minor in Business Management in conjunction with BYU’s Marriott School of Management which many student earn in parallel.
The facilities management degree program has been in existence since 1972 and has a strong technical base combined with a required 400 hours in various internships. During their studies, students attend a weekly “Seminar” where facility, property, and real estate professionals from around the country come to speak about their experiences in the industry. Graduates are able to make good industry contacts through these Seminars and other regular information sessions given by facility management companies throughout each semester. The industry contacts and internships have helped CFM graduates consistently attain a very high placement rate upon graduation.
BYU has approximately 32,000 students, and is located in Provo, Utah, at the western edge of the Rocky Mountains. Students can benefit from the area’s strong outdoors and recreational culture as well as a vibrant campus life.
