Real Estate

A real estate concentration allows students to focus their studies on the real estate industry while majoring in business administration.  It prepares students for an exciting career in real estate: investment analysis, finance, development, and asset management.  Our goal is to prepare graduates for long-term career success.  Graduates have a variety of career paths to choose in the industry including specialty areas such as:

  • Investment analysis
  • Financing
  • Market analysis and research
  • Consulting/advising
  • Brokerage and leasing
  • Development and redevelopment
  • Valuation
  • Asset/portfolio analysis and management
  • Legal affairs
  • Regulation and management in government agencies

The real estate curriculum is built around the framework of the "commercial real estate system" which consists of three integrated markets and functions.  Understanding the three components of the commercial real estate system and how the participants in each component make their business decisions is crucial to a successful career in the commercial real estate industry.

The Carter Real Estate Center links students with the outside real estate community as a means of expanding students' learning experiences beyond the classroom.  Contact Dr. Elaine Worzala, program director, for more information on the Carter Real Estate Center and the requirements for a concentration or minor in commercial real estate.
