Real Estate

Real Estate

Join more than 800 real estate alumni nationwide. The real estate degree in the College of Business Administration will prepare you for exciting and challenging careers in commercial and residential real estate, in mortgage underwriting, asset management, brokerage and appraisal to name a few. You can help make decisions involving tens of millions of dollars on a commercial building or a mortgage, or help a family find their dream home.

Good business sense and an understanding of markets are necessary to succeed in real estate. Just as important for some career paths is learning how to establish positive relationships so you are trusted to make intelligent decisions for your clients. This combination is what makes the real estate major in the Department of Finance so unique.
