MBA students map their success.

One of the distinct benefits of our program is the small student cohort. This scale provides for a boutique experience where faculty members develop a strong understanding of a student’s background and career aspirations.

Earn your MBA Certificate in global real estate through our unique, highly applied program

Students who elect to enroll in the certificate program will take a 7.5-credit sequence of MBA elective courses to develop a strong foundational understanding in theoretical and applied aspects of commercial real estate. Upon graduation from the MBA Program, students will receive a notation on their official university transcript along with a certificate of completion.

All accepted students will enroll in the required Real Estate Private Equity (FINC 558) course, and then will choose three additional courses from a series of real estate electives. The certificate also will require 1.5 credits from among a set of courses in entrepreneurial finance and venture capital, valuation, financial analysis and modeling, or negotiations.
