The Master of Real Estate Development [MRED] program at the University of Maryland provides a comprehensive graduate level education designed to prepare students for a successful career in real estate development. 


The Real Estate Development Program from University of Maryland promotes a multi-disciplinary approach to real estate education. It delivers a comprehensive curriculum with a foundation in the business, finance and entrepreneurial aspects of real estate, paying special attention to the “quadruple bottom line:” economic viability, environmental respect, social responsibility and beautiful design. The program offers a unique mix of elements and a strong finance foundation that prepares students to successfully address industry challenges and become accomplished practitioners.

It includes the following components:

  • Professors who are active industry professionals, committed to providing the working knowledge of how real estate is being developed and managed under current conditions.
