Larry & Klara Silverstein Chair in Real Estate Development & Investment

Welcome to the Schack Institute of Real Estate, a global leader in real estate and urban education, industry engagement, and applied research. Whether your interests are in real estate finance, construction and development, or emerging areas such as real estate technology and data analytics, you will find that Schack is unmatched in the depth and breadth of opportunities for students to advance their careers.

Schack offers one of the world’s leading undergraduate real estate programs and three industry-focused graduate degrees—the MS in Real Estate, the MS in Real Estate Development, and the MS in Construction Management.

Graduate students have the option to pursue their degrees on a full-time or part-time basis. Full-time students in Schack’s Accelerated Track can complete their degrees in just one year. In addition, working professionals based in New York City and elsewhere who enroll at Schack on a part-time basis have options to pursue their studies during the day, evening, and on weekends with our new Executive Track.

Schack’s classroom experience is complemented by a rich array of co- and extra-curricular programming, including global field intensives in real estate capitals such as London, Shanghai, and Tokyo, conferences, guest lectures, site visits, case competitions, and myriad networking opportunities with industry professionals and our renowned alumni.

I encourage you to learn as much as you can about our programs and about the unique experience that the Schack Institute of Real Estate offers its students. I wish you the very best in your professional endeavors and look forward to the possibility of you joining us to pursue your degree.
