Thread: Columbia's RED vs. NYU's Real Estate Development Program?

    Columbia's RED vs. NYU's Real Estate Development Program?

    Hi all. I have been accepted to both Real Estate Development programs at Columbia and NYU. And I can't for the life of me decide which one to attend. I have heard Columbia is too much theory and not enough practical education. and I have also read people saying things like just about anyone is accepted to NYU's program and obviously it's got nothing against columbia's.



    No clue. What do I do?

    There are a couple of threads from a few years ago on this topic. Keep in mind that the some of the posters are highly opinionated, but the consensus seems to be Columbia.

    I guess it depends on where you feel you fit in the best, but from what I've read Columbia's MRED is more competitive in regards to admissions and you would be able to knock it out in a year rather than spread it out over two.

    I'm pretty sure I'm going to do Columbia's program

    I'm still waiting to hear from a couple of MBA programs, but I really like the fact that Columbia is only 1 year in length.

    is there a specific type of real estate work that you're interested in? columbia is probably better oriented towards future developers, while nyu makes more room for those who are more interested in the investment side of things.
