    I am currently a 3rd year student in a 5 year accounting program. I am very interested in commercial development as a career path and would like to someday be able to go out and do my own deals.

    What is the typical career path to becoming a developer?

    Also, how many years of experience at a development firm are typically needed to be capable of starting your own firm and doing your own deals?


    The most straightforward path I’ve seen is to just begin work at a development shop as an analyst. There you’ll learn everything you need to know, and eventually you can strike out and make your own firm. I really couldn’t tell you how long it takes to make your own development firm, but I’d recommend you get at least one business cycle worth of experience before starting your own shop.
