Real Estate Emphasis

Real Estate is one of the most important asset classes in any economy. Real estate careers are varied and focus on key areas such as development and investment, management, or finance and capital markets. Owen's Emphasis in Real Estate is intended to help prepare students for a career in this field and also to introduce those students who concentrate in finance to an area that is now undeniably linked to the capital markets.
