Partnership Benefits

Beginning September 2018, Urban Land Institute (ULI) Chicago members have the opportunity to earn a Master of Science in Real Estate from DePaul University through the ULI Chicago Cohort Program. Benefits of this unique program, available only to ULI Chicago members, include:

  • Lower Out-of-Pocket Degree Cost. A 25 percent tuition discount from DePaul University makes an advanced degree more financially feasible for ULI Chicago members.
  • No GMAT required.
  • Build a Professional Network. ULI Chicago members completing this degree program develop strong relationships with classmates from real estate companies across the region.
  • Eliminate Scheduling Time and Hassle. ULI Chicago Cohort students won't have to worry about registering for courses each quarter. Instead, the business school handles course registration for this one-and-a-half year program. All classes meet in the evening to accommodate working professionals.

Deferred Payment Option

Military and Veterans Benefits

Serving returning military members has been a priority at DePaul since World War II. We do not limit the number of veterans who can enroll through the Yellow Ribbon Program, which provides tuition-free education to eligible students.
