RIBA floats degree in architectural management

  • Comment

The Royal Institute of British Architects with the Bradford Management School has launched an MBA in architectural and construction management

The qualification aims to equip architects with relevant business and design skills.

RIBA north-west chairman Geoff Alsop said: ‘The construction industry faces difficult times and an uncertain future. One of the issues that has arisen is that architects have automatically focused on what they do best: design.

‘This leads in certain instances to a shift in focus away from the fee-earning business side of architecture.

‘Management, legal and administrative processes that enable architects to produce excellence in design and execution must be incorporated into an architect’s skill set.’

Sarah Dixon, management school dean, added: ‘The study of management and business often offers up a wider perspective on how expertise and capital can be leveraged to best effect.’
