Program Title and Classification

Business Administration and Real Estate Development

Graduate Degree Program

College: Business / Architecture


The dual degrees combines course work from the Graduate real estate and business management programs to enable a student to complete both the Master of Business Administration and Master of Real Estate Development degrees with fewer total credits than it would take to complete the two separately and sequentially.

Admissions Information

Applications for the dual degree program, will have their application assessed by each program individually, and may be admitted to one or the other, but not necessarily both programs. If both programs review committees agree to offer admission to their program than a student could proceed on the dual degree track.

For current students enrolled in either program, contact your applicable program director for directions on how you might proceed to enroll in the dual degree program.
