The Facilities Management program prepares students to assume leadership roles in managing an organization’s built environment, either as internal employees or as external service providers and consultants. The program equips students with the competencies to effectively manage a facility throughout its life cycle: They can direct planning, design, and construction activities and ensure that they meet the corporate needs for operations, maintenance, and services functions. They promote that the organization’s concern for a fiscal and social responsibility and environment sustainable practices as reflected in how the organization’s facility assets are operated, maintained, and serviced. The program draws resources from NYC’s vibrant real estate environment: with exposure to innovative approaches to emerging technologies, risk management, business continuity planning, industry case studies, sustainable practices, cost effective management, and best practices. Pratt’s curriculum gives graduates a unique perspective as they lead the efforts to advance the quality of the built environment.
