“The diversified educational platform of the Penn College Construction Management program focuses not only on the technical aspects of the construction industry, but also on the managerial and soft skills required to advance their careers,” said Stephanie L. Schmidt, vice chair of the advisory committee and president of Poole Anderson Construction. “Upon graduation, the BCM students are well-prepared to become future leaders in our industry. These individuals distinguished themselves both in and out of the classroom.”

Advisory committees comprise industry professionals who offer advice on curriculum and equipment, as well as sharing business connections and internship opportunities.
