MBA/MPS in Real Estate

What can the combination of an MBA and an MPS in Real Estate do for you?

Combining specialized knowledge in many facets of real estate with a strong general management foundation gives dual-degree graduates a powerful set of knowledge and skills. This pair of credentials not only gives graduates a distinct edge, but also increases flexibility in career options.

The professional master's degree in real estate delivers a comprehensive foundation in the field, incorporating the perspectives of developer, owner, investor, financier, operator, and user. In addition, it confers knowledge of all the specialized disciplines that apply in the industry: architecture, construction management, development, finance, investment and deal structuring, law, transactions, property management, urban economics and planning.

The MBA provides sound base in all the functional areas of business-accounting, finance, economics, marketing, operations management, strategy, and leadership. Building on these, the program enables individuals to strengthen their leadership ability, as well as to add specialized knowledge in entrepreneurship, sustainable global enterprise, consulting, and other areas.
