Now, more than ever, the real estate development industry needs skilled leaders with a rigorous practical and academic background in the areas of real property, urban design, construction, site development, sustainable practices, as well as real estate asset management, finance, and law.

CAPLA’s Master of Real Estate Development program delivers a solid, broad-based graduate-level education that produces students with outstanding leadership skills and substantial professional knowledge. The program emphasizes best development practices related to environmental sustainability, social responsibility, economic resilience, financial feasibility, deal structuring, and design excellence.

The MRED program is a graduate degree offered by the College of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape Architecture. It is offered as either a 3-semester full-time program, or a 3 year, 6-semester part-time program. The part-time program is designed so that professionals may continue to work in their fields while attending school.  Our MRED students include practicing professionals with experience in real estate development or a related field such as mortgage banking, construction, or planning, as well as recent graduates with a BS/BA in a related field. The program recruits students who have demonstrated excellence in their professional or academic careers and who have the potential to become industry leaders.
