The Real Estate program of The University of North Carolina at Charlotte is designed to provide students with the skills necessary to analyze, evaluate and execute complex real estate investment and development transactions.


About the Program

To emphasize the multidisciplinary nature of the real estate industry and the diverse skill set required for success, the curriculum draws from a variety of academic disciplines such as:

  • Architecture
  • Economics
  • Engineering
  • Finance
  • Geography

Students graduating from the Real Estate program of The University of North Carolina at Charlotte have the skills necessary to qualify for positions such as development associates, underwriters, brokers, asset and property managers, acquisition specialists, and investment/financial analysts.

The graduate students that we attract to the program have diverse professional backgrounds and experience levels. Often students have a specialty in one area of commercial real estate (e.g., lending, brokerage, site planning, etc.) and join our program to acquire the interdisciplinary knowledge and the financial acumen to better evaluate commercial real estate opportunities.

Prior real estate experience ranges from 0 – 10+ years as we recruit students directly from highly competitive undergraduate institutions as well as experienced professionals with 10+ years of experience in a specialized niche of commercial real estate. Most of our students enroll in the program part-time, while continuing to work full time in their current positions. We also enroll full-time students who often complete internships during the academic year.
