University of Denver

The Franklin L. Burns School of Real Estate & Construction Management offers the most advanced education for the business of the built environment both at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The Burns School has one of the few programs in the country that integrates the business side + the build side of the construction industry.

Our undergraduate education offers a deep dive concentration in construction management, property development, or real estate after every student completes a rigorous Business core (finance, accounting, management, business analytics, and marketing) and then a rigorous Built Environment core consisting of Construction Management, Project Delivery, and Real Estate courses. To complete our intention to teach the full-life cycle of the built environment, a Capital Projects Asset Management course caps off the program. In addition to performing at the project level, the Burns School is committed to developing leaders who are prepared to generate greater value, mitigate risks, and eliminate waste through the full-cycle of the construction process.

Our graduate students can select from either an on-campus or online experience. Graduate students build a fully customized program from core competency or advanced course offerings in construction management, integrated project delivery, property development or real estate. In addition, advanced courses in Regenerative Development, Strategic Foresight, Design-Build, and Integrated Project Leadership are available.
