College of Business Administration to offer Minor in Commercial Real Estate

In response to student interest, The University of Texas at El Paso’s College of Business Administration (COBA) will offer a new minor in commercial real estate for undergraduate students starting in the spring 2020 semester.

Input from commercial real estate and development companies including MIMCO, Inc., Stewart Title Co., CBRE Group and Hunt Companies has helped create the blueprint for the program.

The minor in commercial real estate will consist of four courses that will meet primarily in the evening. Program lecturers Carleen Barth, CCIM and Jonathan Robertson, CCIM are local industry experts who each hold real estate certifications in addition to their MBAs. Their firsthand knowledge and industry experience will give UTEP students critical insight into real-world, professional applications.

Erik Devos, Ph.D., associate dean for faculty development at COBA, said the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) Institute, which serves as the leading standard in commercial real estate certifications worldwide, has provided substantial input for th new program.

“Our curriculum mirrors the industry standard and will give students a competitive edge in a field with many promising career opportunities locally and nationally,” Devos said.

In a survey of UTEP business students conducted in fall 2018, approximately 20 percent of respondents said they were already working in real estate or had plans to work in the field.

Through this new curricular offering, COBA is preparing students to respond to the needs of a dynamic, growing industry in El Paso and the surrounding community.

Students and industry partners interested in this opportunity may contact Juan M. Bolaños at jmbolanos@utep.edu or 915-747-7754.
