The B.S. in Real Estate Property Management provides a comprehensive and challenging academic experience that prepares graduates to be leaders in the property management profession. Property management is the administration, operation, marketing, and maintenance of real property in order to achieve the objectives of the property’s owner. Property managers are in a service business and work closely with both the owners of the properties they manage and the tenants and residents who reside and work within these properties.

The field of property management is growing steadily because of three concurrent trends: (1) the simultaneous growth of the population and its requirements for space has increased the total number of all types of buildings, (2) a larger percentage of real estate is considered investment property and (3) there is increasingly wide acceptance of the fact that real estate management requires special training and education.

There is a growing sophistication and professionalism in the management of both residential and commercial property. A professional property manager has to possess a diverse skill set in the areas of finance, accounting, tenant and employee relations and laws affecting these properties. The degree program is designed to prepare students for this by drawing widely from courses in the disciplines of business, management, construction, service management, retail and hospitality.
