The Master of Real Estate Development (MRED) program offered through the University of Arizona’s College of Architecture, Planning and Landscape Architecture (CAPLA) is perfect for professionals who are or intend to be real estate developers and industry leaders and who want to study real estate finance, law, construction management and site planning. Upon graduating from this program, students can expect to move into careers in real estate development, market analysis, property management, construction and project management.
This program is 100% online and follows a three-stage approach: Students will first acquire the fundamentals of the real estate process, learn critical vocabulary, and understand the procedural and legal requirements of the field. Next, they will examine the key financial concepts of real estate, including cash-flow models, market analysis and pro forma development. In the final stage, students will examine the development process as a whole, applying the analysis tools obtained in previous courses to real-life development projects.
Before enrolling, most students hold careers as urban planners, architects, landscape architects, realtors, financial/market analysts, entrepreneurs and real estate developers.
