FRL undergraduate programThe Finance, Real Estate and Law Department (FRL) provides a program for individuals interested in careers in finance, real estate and law or in related fields in private or public organizations. The FRL curriculum provides the student with theory and practical application through hands-on learning in the polytechnic tradition. The overarching goal is to prepare people-oriented leaders who can advance in the business world.
Students select one of the two emphasis areas that best meets their career objectives: (1) Finance and Real Estate, or (2) Business Law and Contract Management.
The Finance emphasis offers courses on the theory and methods of financial analysis and valuation, corporate financial management, the management of financial institutions, securities analysis, and multinational finance. The Real Estate emphasis focuses on real estate brokerage, mortgage lending, residential and commercial appraising, and real property investment/development.
The Business Law and Contract Management emphasis helps prepare students for law school and for careers as contract administrators and contract cost/price analysts.
The department offers four minors: finance, real estate, business law, and financial management of public and private contracts to non-FRL students.
The minor in real estate is formulated to qualify the student with the requisite courses to sit for the real estate broker's examination.
The minor in business law encompasses the study of the legal environment of business.
The minor in financial management of public and private contracts provides sufficient skills and understanding of the principles to enable students to successfully manage commercial contracts, apply contract cost/price techniques, and undertake contract negotiations.
