Earn an Ivy College of Business master of finance (MFIN) and master of real estate development (MRED) degree at the same time through our double degree program.

Improve your skills. Position yourself for success. Every business has a bottom line. That means finance skills are in high demand. Our master of finance program will prepare you for a career in corporate finance, financial analysis, or wealth management. The master of real estate development program helps you spark change and growth in your career. Designed for working professionals, our program is perfect if you want to pursue a career in real estate, including positions such as city planner, architect, finance specialist, real estate agent, commercial realtor, building professional, and industry investor. The MFIN/MRED double degree is a faster pathway to earn both degrees together, saving you time and money.
