Traditional Master’s

Admission to the Nathan S. Collier Master of Science in Real Estate (MSRE) Program is competitive, with approximately 30 students admitted per year. Admission is based on a number of factors including the applicant’s GMAT score, academic record, and work experience. The work experience need not be in real estate; in fact, some of our most successful graduates have used the MSRE to transition from accounting, banking, finance, building construction, planning and other fields to a career in commercial real estate.

Minimum Requirements
  • Bachelor’s degree from an approved institution
  • 3.0 GPA (last 60 hrs of undergraduate coursework)
  • GMAT score of 580
  • Prior work experience is strongly preferred
  • Fits our core values
Computer Requirement

A laptop computer is required. Please consult the minimum hardware and software specifications stipulated by the Warrington College of Business for all graduate students.

UF Admissions online applications begin processing within 48 hours of submission. When completing the online application, under “Primary Program”, look for “Business Administration”, then select “Real Estate & Urban Analysis – Summer Term”. Review the UF Graduate School’s application process overview.

Combined Master’s / Bachelor’s

Admission to the Nathan S. Collier Master of Science in Real Estate (MSRE) Program is competitive, with approximately 30 students admitted per year. Admission is based on a number of factors including the applicant’s GMAT score, academic record, work experience and fit with our program core values. An undergraduate who is competitive for combined bachelors/MSRE admission has taken and excelled in REE 3043 (offered only in Fall), attends our Ring Speaker Series presentations, is active in the Real Estate Society and has worked at least one commercial real estate internship.

Minimum Requirements
  • 3.4 GPA (excels in FIN 3403 Business Finance, REE 3043 Real Estate Analysis & QMB 3250 Statistics for Business, or similar upper division Statistics course)
  • GMAT score of 620 or higher
  • Commercial Real Estate internship/work experience
  • Fits our core values
Computer Requirement

A laptop computer is required. Please consult the minimum hardware and software specifications stipulated by the Warrington College of Business for all graduate students, including those in Combined degree programs.

Application will normally occur in the student’s sophomore or junior years, after or during enrollment in REE 3043 Real Estate Analysis. We recommend you complete the Combined degree application process by November 1st if you want to start in January (Spring), March 15th for Summer B and Fall. If you take the GMAT, select “University of Florida – Warrington College of Business – Masters in Real Estate” in the GMAT drop down menu, and select the UF code 5812, whether you take the GMAT or GRE, to make sure your official scores are sent to the University of Florida. Email your 3 recommendation letters, resume, scanned unofficial transcripts, statement of purpose and UFID directly to our program instead of mailing them. The combined degree application process follows the traditional MSRE application process steps except that you will not submit the UF online graduate application part of the process until after you submit your undergraduate degree application, at which time you will follow the online application instructions for the traditional MSRE program except that you will select the application term beginning after you will complete your Bachelor’s degree.

All applicants must submit the following to our program as email attachments:

  1. Three (3) letters of recommendation
  2. Statement of Purpose (guidelines), same as for the traditional MSRE, except that yours will not go into the online UF Graduate School application form
  3. Your resume – with portrait inserted
  4. GMAT or GRE test scores
  5. College transcripts (an unofficial scan is fine)
id="joint"

Joint JD/MSRE Degree

Admission to the Nathan S. Collier Master of Science in Real Estate (MSRE) Program is competitive and based on a number of factors including the applicant’s GMAT score and academic record. Prior course work in finance, accounting, business statistics or economics is preferable but not required.

Students must apply separately to each program and meet the admissions requirements for both the College of Law and the Master of Real Estate Program. Students may begin one of the two programs before acceptance in the other. However, to qualify for joint degree status, current law students must be admitted into the MSRE Program by the end of their fourth law school semester, and while they still have at least 12 more credits to earn toward their Law degree.

Admissions procedures for students applying to the Real Estate Master’s program as joint JD/MSRE students are the same as for other students admitted to the MSRE Program except that the professional work experience component is less important. Also, current UF Law Students in the Comparative & Tax Programs do not complete the UF Admissions application.

Computer Requirement

A laptop computer is required. Please consult the minimum hardware and software specifications stipulated by the Warrington College of Business for all graduate students.

Current UF JD’s who are applying to the Nathan S. Collier MSRE program and will not take summer classes should apply for the Fall term. However, since the traditional MSRE program begins in Summer B, when completing the online application, under “Primary Program”, look for “Business Administration”, then select “Real Estate & Urban Analysis – Summer Term”. UF Admissions begins processing online applications within 48 hours of submission. Review the UF Graduate School’s application process overview.
