Field Description 

Baruch College's BBA major and minor in real estate are unique within The City University of New York. In these programs, students are introduced to the commercial real estate industry and prepared for related entry-level positions with developers, property managers, lenders, appraisers, brokers, investment bankers, pension funds, commingled real estate funds, real estate investment trusts, real estate advisors and consulting firms, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies. The courses offer real-world knowledge and analytic depth, concentrating on the metropolitan New York market. They include case studies and immersion in industry information sources and build quantitative, writing, and speaking skills. Students learn from faculty members as well as from guest lecturers with practical experience in the field.

Our undergraduate programs will not only prepare students to enter one of the most exciting and fast-growing career fields in New York, but will also ensure that students can acquire competent skills to succeed in related industries in the business world. Indeed, given real estates pervasive impact on public and business sectors, the study of real estate helps students understand the important concepts and issues for making crucial business decisions and creating effective public policy.

The Minor**

The BBA minor in real estate (9 credits) offers a rigorous, concentrated introduction to real estate, with particular emphasis on financial and investment analysis.

Students pursuing a real estate minor take a selection of courses related to law, valuation, finance, investment, construction management, and development. Because the bulk of undergraduate real estate courses are taken as part of the final 60 credits toward the degree, interested students taking arts and sciences or business courses are well positioned to pursue the BBA minor.
