Program of Real Estate Development

Clemson's MRED program gives you the education and skills needed to produce vibrant, quality projects that respect environmental and economic sustainability, social consciousness, design excellence and financial feasibility within the risk-reward framework. This exciting new program is a full-time, two-year professional degree jointly offered by the University’s Department of Planning and Landscape Architecture in the College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities and the Department of Finance in the College of Business and Behavioral Science. The program provides an interdisciplinary approach that incorporates six disciplines - MBA, finance, law, city and regional planning, architecture, and construction science and management courses.

We are excited about the program and the opportunities available in this innovative, professional master's degree. Our advisory committee of real estate development leaders will be actively involved in our program and in your future. We believe the MRED program will enhance your knowledge and capacity to lead in the real estate development process. At Clemson, you can become not just a developer of projects, but a town builder who can take pride in building a community that enhances the quality of life for people to live, work and play.

Mission Statement

As the real estate industry has become more complex and more closely linked to public sector decision-making, many academics and practitioners believe that a multidisciplinary program within a team/work studio environment provides an excellent academic foundation for future practitioners. At Clemson, we are committed to a program that primarily follows the principles of the Urban Land Institute (ULI), which acknowledges that development is a public-private partnership and that quality development requires integrating the perspectives of community, environment and

Clemson's MRED program uses an array of teaching formats including lectures, seminars, workshops and field work, computers, video and slides, case studies, tours and extensive class participation. Entering classes typically have fewer than 20 students. The curriculum is practitioner-oriented with real development issues and scenarios.

The MRED Program Philosophy

Clemson's MRED program focuses on the “master builder” concept, the methodology that promotes an entire vision for a community through sustainable design, creative financing methods, place-making and healthy communities. The MRED program emphasizes best practices from the development, design and environmental communities. We want you to become a visionary who serves as a craftsperson and designer of neighborhoods and community development, one who recognizes the role of the developer in guiding the different aspects of creating the built environment — political, economic, physical, environmental, legal and sociological parameters.

MRED classes focus on the financial pro forma and the bottom line. Real estate is a capital-driven industry, and developers must have a firm understanding of the workings of the capital markets, financial instruments and other financial parameters of valuation, including tax implications. Gap-financing tools and techniques for public-private partnerships, including various tax credit and incentive programs, are thoroughly analyzed. Quality design and sustainability must be incorporated with realistic market and financial feasibility analysis to attract adequate sources of equity and debt financing.
