Thoughts on getting into real estate development with an urban planning degree?
I just got into an ivy league urban planning masters program, focusing in public-private partnerships. My goal is to get into real estate development, starting in acquisitions in a national firm and eventually become a developer. As for my background, I have only had real estate experiences with smaller firms/non-profits and I was an urban studies major undergrad.
Would this program prepare me for a job in acquisitions and give me an edge in the recruiting process? Also, what other jobs in real estate could one obtain after completing this program?
