R. Bonner

I wanted to capture an advanced degree because I was recently passed over for a promotion and I wanted to be poised and ready the next time the position becomes available. The trouble was that I was smart enough and could do the work, but I was not formally trained and credentialed. The CEM degree path has bridged the gap and now I can offer real project management solutions and strategies.

L. Watkins

The CEM program is exemplar in terms of providing relevant construction industry knowledge and flexibility. Because of this program, my experience, and recently expanded duties, I have risen to a senior vice president on a leadership team with a large design-build firm.

L. Robinson

I often felt that I was lacking in construction knowledge and that someone more qualified should have my job. My personal growth and skills learned while in the CEM program has turned me into a new and confident woman in the construction industry, and I am excelling professionally.

I cannot express how rewarding, yet challenging, the UAB CEM master's program actually is. It has given me the necessary skills to continue to evolve into a progressive forward-thinking project manager and has opened doors for advancement within my organization.

The CEM degree is not just a piece of paper, it represents the knowledge that I have obtained that will change my life forever. I am confident that I now have the necessary skills that gives me a competitive edge to lead, communicate, visualize, and problem solve.

Being part of the fully online CEM program allowed me to help my company do business during the COVID-19 pandemic. I was the one in my office giving tutorials about how to run a virtual meeting with cameras and shared computer screens.

A. Aragon

The CEM Program has given me the confidence to try, the knowledge and skill set to succeed, the courage to speak up, and the fortitude to make difficult decisions. Because of UAB, I am a better project manager.

B. Long

I learned that to be competitive in this industry you must obtain degrees and certifications. The CEM degree program was incredible. It is like they took a knife and said we are going to cut out every bit of the fat and only keep what is absolutely practical. It was worth every bit of money that I put into it.

R. Lewis

The CEM Program made me work and the professors truly challenged me. Being able to apply what I learned in the classroom into actual practice gives me confidence.

R. Scott

It has not been easy juggling a career, family, personal life, and graduate school, but the CEM program has been very helpful. The commitment from the faculty and staff makes it quite evident why the program is so highly ranked.

N. Dermody

Leaving the military and preparing to return to the civilian construction industry after almost eleven years, I knew that I would need to retool my construction knowledge to be competitive for employment. The CEM program offered the online flexibility that I needed, and it covered the current relevant course material. I now have new tools and resources to help face the challenges required in the construction industry.

S. Pollard

Approaching graduation, I recently landed a job with a large commercial contracting company, but it was contingent on me completing my UAB degree. These opportunities would not have be possible if not for the CEM program and I am very thankful.

M. Harris

I learned from the CEM program that we manage processes, but we lead people. We also have a cycle that we go through; we explore, we experiment, and we evolve. The value of that exploration has allowed me to step outside of my comfort zone to experiment with more responsibility. I could not have evolved more while at UAB and I owe it all to this program.

A. Ogbe

I have been reaping the benefits from this CEM program since the first week. I added the pending UAB degree to my resume and say that action got me a lot of interviews and eventually my new job as a construction supervisor. Outside of the job position and financial benefits, completing this program has given me a great sense of pride.

M. Bond

All of the classes are absolutely amazing. Even though they are construction management oriented, they truly apply to other fields like design, architecture, engineering, and landscape architecture. I am very grateful for the CEM program and super excited about the future.

W. Rumph

The knowledge, skills and abilities gained from the CEM degree program has been pragmatic in all aspects of my construction business. It also inspired me to expand plan to include program and project management services as part of my construction company portfolio. As a result, I entered an alliance with a larger firm, and we just landed a very large construction management contract. This would not be possible without my UAB experience.

E. Battaglia

The CEM program and the group assignments have introduced me to people that I will be friends with for the rest of my life.

S. Knapp

The knowledge that I have gained in the CEM program has been unlike any educational experience that I have had previously. You hear how students are making an investment in yourself, but the CEM professors really make that investment in students too. They make sure that you are learning and understanding the knowledge from each class.

A. Walker

The UAB CEM program has taught me to be a proud woman in construction while working in a male dominated field. Absorbing and applying the knowledge gained within the CEM Program has led me to experience an abnormal acceleration and promotion within my company.

W. Mitchell

Joining the CEM program was not about receiving the degree to put on my wall or resume, to get a raise, or even a new job. It is about continuing to build my “life’s resume”, and to earn some confidence and credibility along the way.

T. Wade

I selected UAB over other universities because the CEM program is prestigious, very well-known, and has a more affordable cost. Also, looking at the numbers, the CEM program was ranked much better, and the courses lined up neck-to-neck. UAB is an “Unforgettable” experience, an “Admirable” institution, and the “Beginning” of success and happiness.

T. Crawford

I thought that it was interesting that the information that I learned in the classes translated to what I was doing in my job as an assistant project manager. The CEM program is a unique experience and the skills learned have built my confidence. It speaks volumes and I would recommend it to anyone.
