An exclusive experience for MRED students, the mentor program gives students the opportunity to be mentored by top real estate professionals. Experts in development, investments, capital markets, management, banking, brokerage, corporate real estate and more offer their time and industry knowledge to current students, adding an important dynamic to the MRED curriculum. Through the mentor program, students enhance their learning experience and establish key professional relationships early in their career.

Time Commitment

Students meet with their mentor once per month, October through April. This provides ample opportunity for interaction in various settings, without being burdensome to the mentor or student. Meeting suggestions include allowing the assigned student to participate in company meetings and site visits/job-walks, providing feedback and advice to the student, assistaning with deals students are pursuing, sharing lessons learned and more. Mentors have the freedom and flexibility to structure the mentorship meeting based on their schedules.
