Specialization Head: Ed Chazen (email@example.com)
Many IBS students have found jobs in real estate, both in the US and abroad. As the largest asset class in the world, real estate offers a wide range of opportunities in marketing, development, finance and management.
To give you a competitive edge in this job market, we offer a Specialization in real estate. You can complete the Specialization with as few as 16 credits (4 semester equivalent courses).
There are many ways to complete the course work during your two years at IBS. Given the prerequisites and the sequencing of courses, it is harder to do so in only one year. So plan accordingly. Your advisors are ready to assist you, as you think through your scheduling.
BUS 235f is the entry point for the Specialization. At some point, you need to take Financial Statement ANalysis (FIN 216f) and Credit Risk Analysis (FIN 242f), since most entry-level jobs require strong credit analysis skills. In addition, you need to take 2.5 electives, at least on of which must be a module on international real estate (BUS 236f or BUS 237f).
