Daytime Hybrid MSRED

One Year Master of Science in Real Estate Development (MSRED)

Flexible Online with Short Daytime Intensive Residencies in NYC

The one-year option offers students a unique hybrid learning experience that pairs the accessibility of asynchronous online learning with short, immersive daytime courses offered at the Fordham University Lincoln Center campus in New York City. Students experience the best of both worlds. Students complete their 36-credit degree in a single year and leave the program prepared to go to the next level in their career trajectory.


During the 12-month program, students meet in-person five times (1-4 days) at our Lincoln Center campus in NYC. During these immersive 1-4 day learning experiences, MSRE and MSRED students attend daytime sessions and collaborate on team projects.

  • Students complete 16.5 credits on campus and 19.5 credits asynchronously online for a total of 36 credits.
  • International students with F-1 visas may only take one online course each fall and spring semester and therefore complete the majority of the remaining 19.5 credits on campus.


Students begin their degree program in the summer semester with two weeks of daytime intensive courses at the Lincoln Center campus in NYC. Essential topics covered in the intensives include real estate finance, financial modeling, and real estate economics and market analysis. These intensive courses are combined with additional online courses for a total of 10.5 semester credits.

Fall Semester

Students continue in the fall semester with two daytime intensive sessions at the Lincoln Center campus in NYC. Essential topics covered in the intensive sessions include the real estate development process, valuation, and investment analysis. These intensive sessions are combined with additional asynchronous online courses for a total of 12 semester credits.

Spring Semester

In the spring semester students complete 10.5 credits through additional asynchronous online courses. Topics covered include development feasibility study and preconstruction planning.


Students complete the final 3-credit capstone course which is a culminating exhibition of a real-world project experience that demonstrates the student's professional mastery of the subject matter. Being able to demonstrate professional level work is increasingly important for career advancement.
