As part of the finance department at the Whitman School, the real estate program offers access to accomplished faculty and comprehensive, timely coursework that equips students with the knowledge needed for expert analysis and strategic decision making. The skills and insight gained during meaningful hands-on learning and interaction with successful executives gives students a decided edge over their peers in the marketplace. The real estate program provides both the academic and real-world underpinnings needed to make an immediate and meaningful impact in this dynamic and ever-evolving industry. Graduates are consistently hired by leading companies, such as CoStar Group, Greystone, Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services and Quicken Loans.

The real estate major focuses on the managerial and financial perspective of real estate. Curriculum and practical experiences are designed to help students learn to analyze and understand local tax laws, zoning regulations, contracts, real estate valuation, real estate finance and capital markets, real estate portfolio management and much more. The program emphasizes developing an understanding of real estate fundamentals and the capacity to put that knowledge to work in a changing business environment.

The Real Estate Club provides a forum for students to learn more about the industry through dynamic discussions, guest speakers and site visits. These opportunities expand their base of knowledge and introduce them to additional resources through programming and events. A myriad of networking and learning opportunities, such as seminars and panel discussions, are exponentially valuable both in preparing students for the responsibilities of a career in real estate and in making career connections.
