Study Real Estate Development at the University of Michigan

Real estate development enables us to shelter ourselves, connect with each other, work, and procure goods and services. Creating, maintaining, and redefining physical space in all its different forms — from housing to the workplace to shopping centers to sports stadiums — requires bringing multiple viewpoints and partners together to address complex issues related to finance, law, policy, sustainability, and more.

Real estate development directly or indirectly affects energy consumption, global climate change, social relations, placemaking, public policy, capital markets, and personal and corporate wealth creation. More than ever, an understanding of the complexities of maintaining, developing, and financing development will be necessary to create vibrant, equitable places. A suite of courses from across the University of Michigan and a robust network of professors, alumni, and industry and community partners are committed to student achievement.
