Urban Land Economics

The Real Estate Division in the Sauder School of Business at UBC is known to be one of the best in the world. Our faculty sit on editorial boards of some of the top journals, including Journal of Urban Economics, Real Estate Economics, and Regional Science and Urban Economics. Our PhD program draws on the ULE faculty as well as those in Finance, Strategy and Business Economics, Management Science, Economics, and other fields. 

A typical background for qualified applicants might include undergraduate or perhaps graduate training in economics, mathematics, engineering, or other quantitative disciplines. Students are accepted only if the Division believes that they have the ability to succeed in the program. Once a student is admitted, the faculty members are intensely interested in guiding the new researcher through the stages of the doctoral program and in assisting him or her in creating independent research. Except for those funded from outside sources, at least three years of funding is guaranteed to all admitted students.
