Prepare to lead in one of the world’s most dynamic and influential industries.
Learn from experienced developers and real estate professionals in the resurgent city of Buffalo, a vibrant laboratory for applied study in proximity to global financial and employment centers in New York, Boston and Toronto. Join an industry that creates places where people live and work, develops local economies and employment, and shapes cities and environments.
The School of Management and the School of Architecture and Planning offer a collaborative program leading to both the Master of Science in Finance (financial risk management or quantitative finance track) and Master of Science in Real Estate Development degrees.
You can complete the collaborative MSF/MSRED in 2.5 years and 75 credits. (If you were to complete the MSF and MSRED programs separately, it would take three years and 84 credits.)
Apply to both programs at the same time and indicate on each application that you intend to pursue the collaborative program. Administrators from both programs will coordinate their reviews of your applications and make every effort to respond to you at the same time regarding their decision. Each school will apply the same admissions requirements and standards that prevail for its other applicants.
