Careers in Real Estate

Thinking about a career in real estate?

If you think a career in real estate might be the right path for you, the undergraduate concentration or minor in real estate at Rutgers Business School—Newark offers the perfect blend of theory and practice to help you establish a successful career in the industry. Not a business school student? That’s OK. There’s a place for you, too.

Current Rutgers Business School undergraduate students can pursue a 9-credit concentration, while non-business school undergraduates can pursue an 18-credit minor that will include required foundational knowledge most business school students already have. Both options include two core courses—real estate finance and real estate law—while allowing students to also take specialized electives such as development, real estate capital markets, property & asset management, and market analysis.

Students in this program will be taught by top-notch real estate experts and be exposed to relevant coursework and industry-leading guest speakers. But more importantly, by enrolling in either of these programs, you will have unparalleled access to the more than 70 industry leaders who advise the Rutgers Center for Real Estate.

Further, the Center will provide scholarships, mentoring, internships and career opportunities for students enrolled in the program.
