Real estate is the world’s largest asset class, and real estate companies—along with banking and financial institutions—are the largest recruiters of business graduates.
Our undergraduate Real Estate and Economic Development program is the only one of its kind in Maryland, designed to prepare graduates for careers in real property. Upon graduation, you’ll be prepared for a career in:
• development • appraisal • federal, state and local governments • secondary mortgage markets • banking • real estate investment • property management • commercial lending • economic development • land use and planning.
Realize a Career in Real Estate
The business of real estate is far more than the acquisition and sale of property. Real Estate includes not just selling, but building, developing, managing, lending, appraising, investing, and legal oversight.
But real estate, land use, housing policy, and economic development include more than business. The public side of real estate addresses the issues of neighborhoods, jobs and economic growth, construction safety, and government. Economic Development is an increasingly broad field and involves both local and state governments trying to create better living and work environments for their citizens.
University of Baltimore’s Real Estate and Economic Development program provides students with a background in all of these areas. Whether a student wants to follow a public or private path in the broad fields of real estate, the program has classes in all areas. Students can gain knowledge from industry professionals in all fields through internships, the mentor program, class speakers, and events.
