About the Master in Real Estate Development + Design (MRED+D)

The Nancy and Douglas Abbey MRED+D program is a different kind of real estate development program, providing students with strong fundamentals in real estate finance, economics, market analysis, land use, construction, and public-private partnerships, but built around three core pillars of sustainability, social equity, and design. We are training the next generation of socially-conscious and community-oriented developers to be a part of the solution to the grand challenges of our time -- climate change, COVID-19, racial injustice, rising inequality, the affordable housing crisis, and more. Our students come from backgrounds in business, architecture, urban planning, engineering, law, among others, and typically bring 5+ years of work experience. MRED+D is a 3-term, 11-month intensive program with an estimated 2021/22 enrollment of 40-45. See https://ced.berkeley.edu/academics/real-estate/real-estate-programs/
