At DePaul, we’ve studied and taught real estate trends for more than 90 years. In fact, we currently offer the most comprehensive array of real estate courses in Chicago, and the academic and practical qualifications of our faculty allow us to offer an unparalleled real estate education. Courses are frequently team taught by full time faculty and leading Chicago area professionals, with a strong emphasis on case discussion that links theory with pragmatic approaches to problem solving. Individuals with an M.B.A. degree or students currently enrolled in the M.B.A. program may have up to six of their M.B.A. courses count toward the requirements of the Master of Science in Real Estate degree. The exact number of courses that can be double-counted in this manner depends upon the specific coursework of each individual.
Graduates of the program will possess an array of tools with which they will be able to adapt to the evolving and inherently multi-disciplinary industry. More specifically, MS in Real Estate students will obtain:
- Financial and quantitative decision-making skills,
- Critical thinking, evaluation and analysis skills,
- Oral and written communication skills, and
- Technology and geographical information system skills.
