DENVER -- The University of Colorado Board of Regents approved two new master's degrees to be offered on the Boulder campus.

The regents unanimously approved the degrees -- a master of science in supply chain management and a master of science in real estate -- at their December board meeting at the CU-Denver campus Tuesday.

The two new degrees will be offered through the Leeds School of Business.

Rich Wobbekind, senior associate dean for academic programs, said students can enter the supply chain management degree program in August 2014. Wobbekind said students can begin the real estate degree program in June 2015.

"I'm extremely pleased and I'm very thankful, and it's really exciting," Wobbekind said. "We've been putting a lot of energy into putting the curriculum together."

The supply chain management degree program will be a nine-month, 33-credit-hour professional graduate degree program.

The degree in real estate will be a 12-month, full-time, 36-credit-hour program with tracks in asset management and development management.

University officials first proposed the two new degrees to the Board of Regents in September.

According to budget documents provided by campus officials to the Board of Regents, tuition revenue for the degree in real estate is expected to be $1.4 million once the program is fully implemented, which takes three years. Tuition revenue for the degree in supply chain management is expected to be $1.08 million in three years.
