Miami University trustees approve new degree program in real estate, honor Miami’s first Black graduate
The Farmer School of Business adds a new major in real estate management.
The Miami University Board of Trustees approved a new bachelor’s degree in business with a major in real estate at its regular meeting Friday, Sept. 25, the latest new degree program aimed at growing enrollment and preparing students for high-growth careers.
Miami projects the real estate program will start at about 50 students before growing to about 100 students. The launch is partially funded by a private donation. The program joins several other academic degree options Miami has added during the past several years. Other new programs this year include bachelor’s and master’s programs in business analytics, a master’s program in business management and a bachelor’s degree in sports leadership and management (SLAM). Miami also is planning two new academic buildings: a clinical health sciences building and a data science building.
