Welcome to the Department of Real Estate in the Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University.
We offer a range of degree options including a bachelor's, an MBA concentration, an MS in real estate and a Ph.D. in real estate. The real estate major at the Robinson College of Business offers a broad-based curriculum that provides a balance between theory and practice. Our programs emphasize the following major components of real estate: appraisal, corporate real estate, development, finance, investments and market analysis. A degree in real estate will give graduates the foundation necessary to succeed in this exciting industry.
