Mentor Program

MRED students have the opportunity to be paired with professional mentors — industry insiders at the top of their fields. Students meet with their mentors monthly and gain knowledge and insight into their experiences, their business practices and their areas of expertise. The information and networking that emerges from these relationships is unrivaled within the real estate industry.

Full-Time & Part-Time Formats

MRED students can attend the program full-time or part-time. Students attending full-time can complete the program in 3 semesters (12 months), and students attending part-time take 4 to 6 semesters (15-24 months) to complete the program. Full- and part-time students have the same schedule options, and students are able to adjust their credit-hour enrollment each semester.

Professional Network

MRED students, professors, mentors and alumni participate in a shared learning experience that can create a lifelong bond. These relationships naturally offer the opportunity to interact outside the classroom and to associate professionally after graduation. It is common for students and alumni to do business together both during and after the program.

Benefits of Student Status

The real estate world can be competitive, but MRED students often find that their student status opens doors that are closed to competing professionals. Many students even extend their time in the MRED program to take advantage of these unique networking opportunities.  Additionally, many professional organizations such as the ULI, CCIM, NAIOP, BOMA, CoreNet and The Appraisal Institute offer MRED students significantly reduced membership and access fees.
