I am graduating with a BS in Urban Planning from Arizona State University and looking to go to a different graduate school. I am currently looking at U of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Cal Poly SLO and Portland State. My biggest concern is that I don't really want to work in the public sector after graduation.
I want to work in development and creating retro fitting projects in up and coming areas around the mid-west. What would be my best option for a very topical education in this field? I feel that PSU is the most obvious choice here because of the great examples from around the city and they also has a certificate in Real Estate Development.
Does anybody have more experience in this branch of land use planning? It is a very niche-y profession, I got the idea when I went through multiple interviews with a small development company that specializes in this type of planning, but I didn't get the position.
