Letter from the Directors

Dear Prospective Student,

Cities are centers for innovation, culture and learning.  Real estate developments are one of the main catalysts for growth and social development  in cities, as they bring people and businesses together and form communities. They also create some of the most significant environmental impacts related to climate change.

Today, the urbanization is occurring at unprecedented speed and scale.  The majority of the world’s population lives in urban centers and the figures are growing. This translates into an increasing role for responsible real estate developments.   Technology is also evolving and will provide new opportunities to effectively address emerging challenges. Investment environments are now global and becoming more complex; new governance models will impact the way we build, manage, and live in cities to create more competitive and democratic territories.

This 21st century is undergoing the most profound urban revolution to date, and in response, IE School of Architecture and Design has launched a Master in Real Estate Development (MRED).
