About CIM

Receiving tremendous support from the concrete industry, the CIM program was the first of its kind in United States – a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in Concrete Industry Management. Since its humble beginning, the CIM program has expanded and is offered at Middle Tennessee State University, California State University, Chico, Texas State University, New Jersey Institute of Technology and our newest program at South Dakota State University. Today, there are almost 1,500 graduates of the Concrete Industry Management program working in the industry.

The goal of the program is to produce broadly educated, articulate graduates grounded in basic construction management, who are knowledgeable of concrete technology and techniques and are able to manage people and systems as well as promote products or services related to the concrete industry. It entails a broad range of courses, from English and history to science and mathematics. Students must participate in a series of required business courses such as finance, marketing, management and business law throughout the length of the program.

The concrete-specific courses teach the fundamentals of concrete, properties and testing, concrete construction and more. All of these courses provide much more than what is simply in the text – they emphasize problem solving, quality assurance and customer satisfaction. They utilize practical case studies and an internship to make sure the student obtains real-world experience essential to starting a successful career. Additional opportunities include on-campus socials and other events providing industry networking and professional development.

The CIM National Steering Committee added an Executive MBA program in 2012. This CIM Executive MBA is specifically for individuals with three or more years of experience in the industry.

The CIM program has provided and continues to provide future leaders for the concrete industry. To learn more about the program, visit
