Facilities Management

Ever wonder what it takes to operate a large building, such as a high-rise, a sports arena or a college campus? Facilities managers are the ones that help ensure buildings function well. Behind the scenes, they wear many hats and make all facility-related decisions. Facilities managers get involved in everything from operational details to big-picture strategic planning. Because of their job diversity, facilities managers must be creative problem solvers, have excellent people and supervisory skills, and knowledge of the materials and processes that make a building safe and functional. Launch your career at the center of the workplace.
