MBA Real Estate Program
The MBA Real Estate Program builds upon the strengths of Columbia Business School’s top-ranking MBA program, providing students an unparalleled opportunity to expand their entrepreneurial skills while focusing on real estate finance and investment management. As real estate is both a physical and a financial product, with transactions taking place in local space as well as global asset markets, the MBA Real Estate Program emphasizes an interdisciplinary blend of theory and practice, providing students with not only solid real estate fundamentals, but also critical thinking, complex problem-solving, and both written and oral communication skills.
Situated in New York City, a vibrant center of real estate development and capital markets, the Paul Milstein Center for Real Estate brings highly respected academics together with industry leaders to produce a premiere real estate program that is both comprehensive and rooted in practice. Global and local themes are woven throughout the curriculum, and many of Columbia CaseWorks’ 65+ proprietary real estate business cases are taught in class by the very professionals who managed the transactions under discussion.
