Overall, we are making curriculum changes to the real estate major so that it becomes more finance-focused.
We are removing ECON 500 and GEOG 344 because these courses have not been offered in a number of years and we do not believe that they should be part of a finance-focused real estate program.
We believe that the three required courses should be taken by all real estate majors. In addition, we believe that the majors should have at least one additional finance course (either 365, 465 or 469).
Finally, we provide students with an elective in real estate (either Global Real Estate Capital Markets, Real Estate Market Analysis, or Real Estate Appraisal).
