“The Masters of Science in Global Real Assets is what we believe to be the real estate education for the next ten years. We are looking at a broader definition of the built environment.
And for our definition, what we are including is not only real estate, but also infrastructure.
So we’re talking about very traditional issues of office buildings,industrial buildings, and apartments, but we’re also talking about things such as transportation infrastructure, social infrastructure and so forth.
And within that, infused within is the issues of ESG. The built environment contributes 40% of global greenhouse gas emissions.
We have a very important role in helping to address global climate change. One of the aspects of commercial real estate and real assets that I like a great deal is the influence it has on the way people live.
Everything you undoubtedly have done today has involved something in the built environment, whether it’s your home, whether it’s your school, whether it’s your business.
Global real assets has a meaningful impact on the way people live and can be a force of good in helping to improve the way people live.
And so within the Global Real Assets Program, we’re worried about issues of the environment.
We’re worried about issues of society and governance.
But most importantly, we’re worried about understanding how all of that increases performance.
Our view is that embracing ESG within the construct of global real assets will improve the performance of individual firms.
And so what our students are going to learn as part of this program is how issues of ESG infused within issues of infrastructure and real estate can improve overall firm performance.
At the end of the day, you’re in graduate school because you’re concerned about your career and advancing your career. We will work with each student while they are in the Masters of Science in Global Real Assets to ensure that they have the best possible career outcomes as that matters just as much to us as it does to you.
Should you be interested in discussing this Master’s of Science in Global Real Assets, we would welcome the opportunity.
Our program is very focused on the student.
We take a very student centric approach to everything we do, and we would encourage you to reach out to us directly to have a conversation about how this degree program can help you in your career.” Matthew L. Cypher, Ph.D
