The demand for qualified real estate professionals continues to increase as the real estate industry is being transformed by economic, social, regulatory, and demographic factors in Chicago, across the nation, and around the world. The DePaul Master of Science in Real Estate (MSRE) responds to the demands in the marketplace by building on our robust tradition of real estate course offerings and incorporating classes across colleges and disciplines, including marketing, law, public policy, geography and economics. The MSRE is designed as a part-time degree for working professionals who want a highly focused and specialized program. However, sufficient courses are offered each quarter so that full-time students can complete their degree program within one calendar year. Students who have previously completed an MBA may waive some or all of the introductory core courses.
The program consists of 12 courses: 7 core courses and 5 electives for students who have completed satisfactory graduate or undergraduate business prerequisites in accounting and economics. The program may be completed part-time in 1 1/2 years or full time in one calendar year. Students who have not completed a business degree may need to take courses in accounting and/or economics before begining the program.
