The Baker Difference
Rather than simply scratching the surface with a one-year course of study, the two-year Baker Program fully prepares you to become an expert and leader in the industry.
At the end of the first semester, students, in collaboration with their advisors, select a concentration—an area of specialized expertise that distinguishes them in the industry
A summer internship between the first and second year typically aligns with your chosen area of concentration, and gives you a distinct edge in a finding leadership positions in the industry upon graduation
In between the fall and spring semesters, Baker students embark on week-long domestic or international site visits that include meetings with alumni and local real estate leaders, and exploration of a variety of environments around the world
Specialists in their fields, our faculty members provide expertise in areas as diverse as:
- The role of the developer, owner, investor, financier, operator, and user
- Investigation into development, finance, investment and deal structuring, architecture, sustainable design, property management, urban design and economics, and more
