​Real Estate Major

Bring out your inner tycoon.

At the Knauss School of Business at the University of San Diego, we offer something not many other undergraduate business programs can: a chance to learn what it takes to become successful in real estate, from commercial and residential sales to development and investments.

Through case studies led by our staff of successful real estate pros, including former CEOs, you will learn legal and ethical principles of commercial and residential real estate, financing, valuation and investment practices. As you progress, you will have the opportunity to intern and network with local industry professionals and to discover firsthand how sustainable real estate works.

As a real estate major, you can also take part in the annual NAIOP University Challenge. With a team of fellow undergraduate real estate students, you will compete against local universities to come up with a development strategy for a real piece of land in San Diego. The experience will challenge you to think about how to make properties more profitable while fueling economic growth.
