Why Real Estate Development?

Real estate markets are complex, dynamic, constantly evolving, local and increasingly global. Success demands leaders who understand all the facets of commercial real estate, are knowledgeable, skilled and ethical professionals who can create value by visioning new opportunities that are financially, socially, and environmentally sustainable.

NSU's program is one of the country's most comprehensive master's level real estate university programs. The program offers the essential courses in real estate so students gain an in-depth understanding and learn the skills required for success and leadership in the industry. Unlike MBA degrees which offer real estate concentrations, NSU's program is focused exclusively on core courses, real world learning and projects that develop the industry's future leaders.

NSU's MS in Real Estate Development (MSRED) program prepares graduates to undertake mid and senior level responsibility in development, management, investment and sales and marketing firms. Graduates enter the industry as emerging leaders knowing how to locate and analyze the diverse aspects of real estate from legal, economic and financial considerations to political and regulatory requirements. The rigorous program is taught in an "Executive" format every weekend. The full immersion curriculum is taught by highly experienced leaders with in-depth knowledge gained from years of actual experience. Classes, in-field case studies and real world projects from noted professionals focus on providing hands-on applications of practical knowledge that can be immediately used. Program graduates provide significant added value to their companies.

The Master of Science in Real Estate Development is one of the innovative professional programs taught by Nova Southeastern University's H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business in downtown Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Las Olas Blvd.
