Master of Real Estate Development students will develop skills needed to evaluate, create, implement, and manage real estate development proposals, and to understand how real estate development fits into regional planning, community and sustainability-based development, and economic processes.

With Portland’s renowned reputation for sustainability and innovation, the real estate development program is designed to make extensive use of the community and sustainability-based development dynamics associated with the best of metropolitan Portland’s contemporary development. PSU’s MRED is the only Master of Real Estate Development, or related degree, offered in Oregon and Southwest Washington, and is one of only a handful of MRED programs offered on the west coast.

The core curriculum introduces students to real estate development in the context of finance, urban planning, community development, and sustainability to ensure that the projects that are developed are sensitive to the human and physical environment and communities in which they exist.
