Learn at your own pace

The master’s programs are designed for busy professionals, offering flexibility and convenience with most courses held one evening per week per course. You can pursue your degree on a full-time or part-time basis.

If pursuing a full master’s level degree is not what you are looking for, consider the Graduate Certificate Programs in Real Estate Development or in Real Estate Investment and Finance.  The courses can apply towards a graduate degree at a future date.
