Why Real Estate Education?

Recognizing both the need and the opportunity for growth in this critical area of business education and engagement, the Alberta School of Business and the real estate community partnered together with a common mission to "raise the bar" for real estate education in Alberta. The Real Estate curriculum at the Alberta School of Business works to provide real estate education for builders of communities recognizing that anyone in any career must share responsibility for our "built" environment and the role it plays in our daily lives.

Graduates with a real estate focus have a skill set and background allowing them to take on the challenge of working with high profile entities as evidenced by successful placements over the last few years. For example, graduates have joined Melcor, CBRE, Avison Young, Colliers, JLL, One Properties, AIMCo, Deloitte, Colliers, the Rohit Group, CanadaICI and Beaverbrook among others.

Real Estate at the Alberta School of Business:

  • Has a core curriculum which matches some of the best programs globally
  • Facilitates outreach to the industry through networking events, placement of students, and engagement with the industry and the community
  • Has enhanced the level of applied as well as academic real estate research at the University of Alberta
