MSRED + MBA

Real Estate Development students stand near and talk about their studio model.

The School of Architecture and Planning and the  School of Management at the University at Buffalo offer a collaborative program leading to both a Master of Science in Real Estate Development  and a Master of Business Administration (MBA).

If you aspire to have a career in real estate development or investment, or if you want to advance in your career in this field, UB's MSRED + MBA track will give you a comparative advantage, and will significantly broaden your career options.

Real estate development and investment is one of the largest and most dynamic business sectors, both in the U.S. and globally.  Comprised of large, publicly-traded companies and small entrepreneurs, real estate professionals build and invest in residential, office, retail, hospitality, and industrial properties in almost every town and city.  But each place, and each investment is different, so these professionals face diverse challenges, calling for diverse skills and expertise.  

The MSRED provides you with a comprehensive understanding of the interdisciplinary perspectives that developers, investors, lenders, managers, and corporate users need to have in order to be successful in the built environment.  You will get a solid foundation in principles relating to architecture, construction, development, finance, investment, real estate law and transactions, property and facilities management, and urban and regional planning.

An MBA will equip you with strong skills in finance, as well as in accounting, marketing, operations management, organizational leadership, and strategy.

Together, these degrees will give you a mastery over broad-based business fundamentals, and specialized expertise for today's competitive commercial real estate industry.

At UB, you can complete these degrees at an accelerated pace. You will need to apply and be accepted by both the MBA and the MSRED programs. You can apply before starting graduate school, or you can apply during your first year in either program.

What will I be studying?

First-year curriculum, second-year curriculum, third-year curriculum, interested in a msred + mba collaborative degree.

Note: You will need to apply separately to the MSRED and MBA programs

UPlan moves forward, sets path to improve financial efficiencies

Concept of financial management featuring the hands of two people working with various chart and graph printouts.

By GRACE GERASS

Published April 15, 2024

The UPlan project team recently held a kickoff meeting where almost 130 business administrators were invited to learn about the budget process, tool and implementation roadmap.

The UPlan project will create a digital tool that will:

  • Enhance current unit-based processes.
  • Provide consistent data to support strategic decision-making.
  • Create a system to respond to reporting needs and information requests.
  • Decrease manual data gathering, verification and formatting.
  • Improve forecasting, reporting and scenario planning.

The initiative is sponsored by Laura Hubbard, vice president for finance and administration, and A. Scott Weber, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs.

“UB is committed to analyzing and improving our existing business process to be more strategic, efficient and effective.” Hubbard says. “UPlan — one of the largest projects in UB’s operational excellence initiative — will increase efficiency, improve effectiveness and align resources across the university by bringing our annual resource-planning process together with our current information systems. We’re excited to move forward with a clear roadmap this year.”

The project launched in December 2023 with governance planning, workshops and a project timeline. In the next few months, the group will continue to hold unit liaison meetings, build the application and validate data. They will also create and implement a training plan with pilot testing and develop a transition plan.

Looking ahead to fall-winter 2024, UPlan will further roll out the product with training, documentation and community of practice.

“For UB’s decanal units, UPlan will integrate directly with the most up-to-date enrollment, HR and financial systems data to enhance budget planning and analysis, and align resources with our academic and research goals, thereby providing a consistent and streamlined approach to budget planning across the university,” says Weber. 

The UPlan project team spans multiple departments and units, including:

  • Peter DiNunzio, senior resource analyst, Resource Planning.
  • Nancy Kielar, assistant vice president and director, Office of the Vice President and CIO.
  • Debra Lowe, assistant dean and director of finance, School of Management.
  • Thomas Okon, assistant vice president, Business Reporting and Systems.
  • Beth Rogan, director of finance, Office of the Vice President for Student Life.
  • Zachary Root, financial analyst, Financial Management.
  • Andrea Roy, project coordination, Business Reporting and Systems.
  • Heidi Waddy, project administration.

Beth Corry, associate vice president of business services and controller, and Joe Lewandowski, director of resource planning, serve as initiative owners.

UB is partnering with Huron, a global consulting group, to implement UPlan. Huron has worked with more than 40 higher education institutions, including all R1 universities. Huron’s tool will integrate UB data — including actuals, encumbrances, enrollment and credit hours, and employee-level staffing — to help enable planning processes.

“The UPlan initiative has been in the works for several years,” Hubbard says. “We want to thank everyone who has helped us get to this milestone and to all those currently working with our team through this process.”

Learning Outcomes

The University at Buffalo School of Management Undergraduate Programs are committed to making a difference in the lives of our students, guided by a culture of responsibility and mutual respect. The over-arching goal of our program is to develop a well-rounded business professional who is capable of:

  • Leading through innovation and embracing positive change.
  • Applying quantitative analysis and critical thinking skills to solve problems and develop opportunities.
  • Communicating effectively, including both clarity of message and professionalism.
  • Fostering collaboration to achieve organizational goals.
  • Thriving in a global business environment.

The hallmark of a School of Management graduate should be a highly skilled, emotionally mature and culturally sensitive professional with a strong sense of integrity and ethics. Our program prepares students to enter directly into their chosen career path or to apply to graduate school upon completion of our bachelor’s degree.

The Learning Environment

Courses in the program are delivered by highly qualified faculty using instructional approaches that ensure the learning outcomes of each course. Students take a series of prerequisite courses early in their academic careers that serve as a foundation for the upper-level core curriculum. There are upper-level core requirements that cut across multiple management disciplines providing a comprehensive understanding and application of contemporary management practices. Many courses are project-based integrating case studies. The capstone course offers academic training with real-world exposure through experiential learning.

Several of the courses are delivered via Digital Access or in lecture halls, while the other half average 45 students. Recitations that accompany core courses are taught by teaching assistants in class sizes of approximately 30 or less. The class size for additional required concentration courses typically average 45 students. 

About Our Facilities

The Jacobs Management Center and the adjacent Alfiero Center offer a complete home for management students, faculty and staff. Together, they are among only a few buildings at UB that commingle classrooms and offices, creating an interactive community of professionals, students and scholars.

About Our Faculty

Nine members of our faculty are recipients of the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Teaching, which recognizes outstanding teaching ability through superb classroom performance. These scholars bring to their classes broad interests and current, far-ranging knowledge.

The faculty of the program consists of ladder faculty and clinical faculty. Both types of faculty have the highest academic degree required for their appointment. Ladder faculty members hold doctoral degrees and maintain an active research record by publishing in the top and leading academic journals in their area of expertise. Clinical faculty members hold one or several professional certificates (e.g., CPA) in addition to academic degrees required for their appointment. Academically qualified clinical faculty also publish in their area of expertise. Our faculty frequently attend conferences, workshops, and other professional meetings to update their knowledge and develop professional networks. Our faculty is actively engaged in mentoring students (e.g., serving as faculty advisor of student clubs and coaching student teams in case competition) and ensuring a high-quality learning environment.

This expertise enables them to illustrate the theoretical side of business concepts and bring them to life with practical industry examples. Our faculty's commitment to teaching, along with their contacts, availability and friendliness, makes them a powerful and highly approachable resource for our students.
