    International Real Estate Concentration Proposal

    The Evening MBA program currently offers concentrations in the following five disciplines: Marketing, International Business, Finance, Human Resource Management, and Management Information Systems. We are proposing a new concentration in International Real Estate. The concentration in International Real Estate would require 18 credits including the following Evening MBA core courses:

    ; FIN 6428 Corporate Finance

    ; FIN 6644 Global Financial Strategy

    In addition to the above courses, students are required to take 12 credits in any of the following courses offered by the Master of Science in International Real Estate program:

    ; REE 6045 Real Estate Markets, Institutions and Practices

    ; REE 6200 Real Estate Finance

    ; REE 6305 Advanced Real Estate Investments and Valuation

    ; REE 6435 Real Estate Law

    ; REE 6935 Seminar in International Real Estate

    ; REE 6715 Regional Real Estate Development (MSIRE Elective)

    ; REE 6935 Special Topics in Real Estate: Market Analysis (MSIRE Elective)

NOTE:

    This is a proposal for a new concentration. The Evening MBA requires 55 credits of which 12 credits (4 courses) are electives. If the students take a particular set of courses for electives, they can get a concentration, and the transcripts mention it. There are currently five concentrations in the program. This proposal allows students a fifth option: concentration in International Real Estate. All the Real Estate courses that can be taken as electives are already taught in the MS International Real Estate program. Therefore, no new courses, resources, or faculty are required to implement the additional concentration.
