What you'll learn
The AMDP in-class curriculum includes modules on core real estate functions, new approaches for leading change, and a broader grasp of strategy, leadership, planning & design, development, technology and finance.
Participants also learn via an in-depth Team Project - an academic exercise that employs both professional experience and class learning. Problems for these projects are as diverse as the redevelopment of dying shopping malls in Denver and Los Angeles or brownfield sites on Staten Island to exploring possibilities for the city of Toronto or East Boston waterfront.
The Independent Projects are individual projects that participants craft for their own work - integrating their learnings into a project relevant to their current, or future work. They do the project independently, but the work will be developed, reviewed, and discussed with two coaches, who will be available to provide advice and answer questions.
Each AMDP participant must also satisfy the elective requirement: Electives are intended to provide participants more in depth knowledge and expertise in topics not included in the three core AMDP terms. Common elective topics include finance fundamentals and international strategies, leadership, urban retail, hotel development, smart cities, integrated project management, walkable cities, master planning, etc.
The on-campus and off-campus modules, combined with the Team Project, Indepenedant Proejct, and Electives, all combine to return participants to their careers transformed and ready to identify, frame, and address their complex business problems. Many graduates find themselves discovering problems and career paths they never would have imaginaed.
Nowhere else offers the unique combination of a design and real estate education.
