Real estate specialization
All Stern students interested in real estate are highly encouraged to take courses within the MBA program's Real Estate specialization. The real estate specialization provides rigorous training in (i) the economics of real estate development and investment, (ii) the pricing and valuation of financial instruments with real estate as the underlying, such as REITs and mortgage-backed securities, (iii) the workings of real estate primary and secondary markets, and (iv) the legal, taxation, and regulatory environment. Elective courses can be chosen to emphasize the commercial real estate development process or the investment strategies in real estate capital markets. With an appropriate choice of elective courses, the real estate specialization provides in-depth preparation for various careers in real estate, including development, brokerage, private equity, and public securities.
