Real Estate Students in Action
Meet Will Casey a current student in UB's real estate and economic development program as her discusses his internship at the Jacob France Institute and "The Pipeline" -- an online service to developers. It tracks the real estate development process and reviews of Baltimore City.
The business of real estate is far more than the acquisition and sale of property. Real Estate includes not just selling, but building, developing, managing, lending, appraising, investing, and legal oversight.
But real estate, land use, housing policy, and economic development include more than business. The public side of real estate addresses the issues of neighborhoods, jobs and economic growth, construction safety, and government. Economic Development is an increasingly broad field and involves both local and state governments trying to create better living and work environments for their citizens.
University of Baltimore’s specialization in Real Estate and Economic Development provides students with a background in all of these areas. Whether a student wants to follow a public or private path in the broad fields of real estate, the program has classes in all areas. Students can gain knowledge from industry professionals in all fields through internships, the mentor program, class speakers, and events.
