Career Services for MRED Students

MRED students have access to numerous career management resources at the David Eccles School of Business, including a dedicated career counselor who works one-on-one with MRED students. We are committed to providing resources to help students maximize their graduate education and succeed as real estate professionals.

Even under favorable economic circumstances, landing the right job requires more than a degree. That’s why the Eccles School has invested significantly in career resources for students. We develop and actively manage recruiting relationships with a growing number of companies, from Fortune 500 stalwarts to buzz-worthy start-ups. We regularly bring in guest lecturers working in every sector of the real estate industry.
