MBA with Real Estate Concentration

Evolving economic conditions and emerging industry trends have increased the demand for individuals with graduate-level training in real estate finance and development. As the industry becomes more and more sophisticated, real estate firms have placed a significant value on professionals capable of analyzing complex problems and offering timely solutions. 

The real estate finance and development concentration will help you develop both qualitative and quantitative problem solving skills, while gaining a better understanding of the role real estate investments play within the built environment. Emphasis is placed on the value proposition presented by different real estate investment alternatives, as well as the economic, political and social factors that influence the success or failure of such projects. Students in the concentration have gone on to pursue careers as asset managers, commercial brokers and appraisers, corporate real estate professionals, development associates, financial analysts, market researchers, project managers, property managers, and real estate lenders. 

The M.B.A. concentration in real estate finance and development allows students to complete four courses in real estate in addition to their core graduate coursework in business administration. It is ideal for students interested in obtaining the problem solving, management and leadership skills emphasized in an M.B.A. program, while also receiving exposure to fundamental real estate principles and best practices.
