Bachelor of Business in Real Estate

The Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration, through its Real Estate Division (RED), offers a post-diploma degree completion program that leads to the Bachelor of Business in Real Estate (B.B.R.E.). The program requires the completion of the Diploma in Urban Land Economics or equivalent plus additional real estate, general education, and business courses. The real estate courses are delivered by the RED, which is located in the Michael A. Goldberg Centre for Real Estate and Distance Education, while an agreement with Thompson Rivers University will enable students to obtain the required general education and business courses.

The Bachelor of Business in Real Estate is a part-time program, delivered by distance education methods. The program allows industry professionals to continue their careers while simultaneously advancing their formal education beyond the diploma level in order that they may prepare to meet the challenges and opportunities of an increasingly complex and dynamic industry. The curriculum has been developed in consultation with the real estate industry to ensure it meets the accreditation requirements of the various professional associations.
