        Build a Foundation for a Prosperous Career

        See what others don’t. Build what others can’t.

        Our Master of Real Estate Development graduates shape communities and change the way people work, live, and play within them. They plan, finance and build economically sustainable developments based on principles taught in our classrooms and seen first-hand at developments they visit during field study trips in the U.S. and abroad.  

        This unique program is offered jointly through the Harbert College of Business and the College of Architecture, Design, and Construction. Its broad curriculum lays the foundation for a prosperous career in real estate development. You’ll learn about sustainable development and natural resource efficiency while mastering industry-specific skills, including: 

        • Finance
        • Architecture
        • Planning
        • Construction 
        • Law 
        • Market Analysis 

        Because our students are professionals who cannot pause their careers to pursue a graduate degree, our program is delivered primarily online, but you also share learning experiences in the classroom and in the field. These short residencies and field studies with  peers help create a professional network that will last long after you receive your degree.
