Real Estate Development

The MPS in Real Estate Development gives you practical skills and knowledge to advance your career in this growing industry.

Program length & format

The MPS is 30 credit hours. Courses are accelerated and last 7.5 weeks, so you can take six credit hours per term while only taking one class at a time. This allows you to complete the program in five semesters (21 months).

The MPS program is structured as a cohort, meaning students begin the program at the same time and take all classes together. This gives you the opportunity to network and develop relationships with classmates from diverse backgrounds.

Class times & location

Classes are offered in sequence in an on-campus format. Classes meet one night per week from 6-9:45 p.m.


The curriculum for the MPS in Real Estate Development consists of the following:

  • A foundational ethics course that focuses on ethical issues in the work environment (3 credit hours).
  • Concentration courses that provide both theoretical framework and practical application within the industry (24 credit hours). Courses will cover real estate development, finance and value analysis, appraisal and markets, along with project management and law/contract negotiation.
  • A capstone course in which students collaborate with an industry sponsor and faculty advisor to complete a project in one of three areas: critical problem solving, contribution to industry practice or a field experience (3 credit hours).
