New York, NY-July 20, 2006 -- David Birdsell, dean of the School of Public Affairs, and John Elliott, dean of the Zicklin School of Business, have announced the official merger of SPA’s Bachelor of Science in Real Estate and Metropolitan Development (BSREMD) and Zicklin’s Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in real estate. The resulting new BBA in real estate comprises two distinct tracks: Investment and Development. The BSREMD program will no longer admit majors as of Friday, September 15, 2006.

      The Zicklin Department of Real Estate and the School of Public Affairs will hold two Information Sessions in the Oak Room (137 East 22nd Street, 2nd floor) on Wednesday, September 13, 2006 (12 pm & 6 pm) for students who would like to learn more about the differences between the BSREMD and the new BBA. Additional Tuesday and/or Thursday Information Sessions will be scheduled as needed.

      Students affected by the Real Estate merger are strongly encouraged to attend one of these Information Sessions where faculty, staff advisors, and Advisement Center counselors will be on hand to offer one-on-one guidance and curricular advisement. FAQ sheets highlighting the differences in prerequisites, major admissions requirements, and major courses will also be handed out.
