Real Estate Minor

 The College of Business & Economics aims to help students to better fulfill their educational and career goals for a Real Estate Broker license. Of the 23 California State University (CSU) campuses, only 7 offer Real Estate programs. CSUEB is the only Bay Area CSU campus which offers a Real Estate program. To help meet the needs of employers in the Bay Area, the minor will educate students on real estate development, finance and investment, portfolio allocation and asset management, and licensing.
