Real Estate and Infrastructure

The one-year full time Master of Real Estate and Infrastructure (MREI) is the first graduate program in Canada that offers a combination of courses in both Real Estate and Infrastructure. The program builds upon the quality and reputation of the MBA specialization in Real Estate and Infrastructure, which was established in 1991.

The MREI integrates leadership development with a focus on development, investment and financing of real estate and infrastructure. It combines classroom learning with a one-of-a-kind co-curricular experience, creating very strong linkages between theory and practical application and capitalizing on a strong network of alumni and other industry participants.

Students will take a common set of courses in the first two terms with the option to take either real estate or infrastructure electives in the third and final term. The program also offers an optional internship in Term 3, with a lighter course load and classes scheduled on evenings and weekends.

The backbone of the curriculum is a leadership development course that runs throughout the three terms and integrates learning from the myriad aspects of the student experience.
