Congratulations George Boykin!

Congratulations to George Boykin for being the first graduate of the Sam and Janet Alley Master of Science in Construction Management program at the University of Arkansas! Our Chairman of the Board and Co-Founder, Sam Alley, and his wife Janet, created this program to fill a growing need for construction leadership in Arkansas. Mr. Boykin doubled up on some of his classes in order to graduate a semester early. George is currently a Building Systems Engineer for the UA Athletic program. He stopped by our headquarters in Little Rock for a tour and to meet with Sam, Janet, and our team.

“The Sam and Janet Alley Master’s in Construction Management program at the University of Arkansas provides an incredible opportunity for those seeking an advanced degree in the Construction Management profession. Not only is the program suited for seasoned construction management professionals, engineers, and architects but also those looking for a career change. The professors, lecturers, and presenters have a wealth knowledge and decades of experience in the industry and it shows in the classroom and curriculum. After completing this degree, I now have the confidence to walk into any organization and bring a wealth of knowledge to the table. I cannot begin to express the value of this program to Northwest Arkansas, surrounding states, and the country, now more than ever. There are very few, if any, programs available that afford the flexibility of online correspondence for full-time working professionals. Sam and Janet Alley along with the University of Arkansas Engineering Department hit the nail on the head with this program and I am excited for what future holds for the Masters in Science in Construction Management at the University of Arkansas.”

There is a lot of interest in the M.S. Construction Management program! There will be approximately 10 graduates in December with around 50 graduates in 2023. In conjunction with the UA College of Engineering, Sam Alley designed the 30-hour program to learn scheduling, finance, productivity, safety, contracts, and risk management. In addition to the College of Engineering, the Sam Walton College of Business, the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design, and the School of Law are all involved. Students can earn industry certificates as well. As Mr. Boykin expressed, graduating from such a wonderful program is bittersweet.
