MRED Program Highlights
The MRED program offers a number of opportunities for students to gain hands-on skills, network in the real estate development community and directly apply classroom knowledge to industry – all of which support students in furthering their development careers. Learn more about what the MRED program has to offer below.
In order to accommodate working professionals, MRED courses are offered primarily in the evenings, with most starting at 6 p.m. A limited number of daytime electives are also available, though the required core courses are all offered in the evenings. MRED students also have the option to complete the program at a full-time or part-time pace and continue working while earning their degree.
Our dedicated career coach will help you find and get the best internships, professional experiences, and careers possible. You’ll be invited to recruiting events, granted access to an exclusive jobs database, have one-on-one consultations, and access to hundreds of real estate professionals.
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 are unrivaled within the real estate industry.
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.
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.
