Hello again, thought I'd address the Urban Planning Community on some thoughts I've been having on graduate school. After some research I've been looking into obtaining a Masters of Real Estate and Development. Currently I'm a landscape architect who works on very large projects, some people would consider me a "land planner". My interest in graduate school have been mostly design oriented (i.e. urban design, architecture, urban and regional planning)... until now. The reason being, my background in design has served me well, but I'm also looking on how I can become more profitable for my company and diversify myself into more of the financial and economics behind what we do, although I don't necessarily want to be a "developer".
From my research I have seen many programs that offer a 1 year Masters. This is very interesting, but I'd like to go into a program that is very involved in the Architecture program at the university. Any recommendations or does anyone feel this wouldn't be appropriate for what I want to do? Thanks in advance.
