Careers

MSRE graduates make immediate and significant contributions to the workplace, evidenced by the fact that numerous employers come back to hire additional graduates year after year. They trust our program.

While our academic program is stellar, our true competitive advantage is providing many opportunities to enhance the soft skills necessary to excel in the workforce through professional development opportunities, networking functions and access to our well-regarded advisory board members.

I graduated with hundreds of professional contacts I gained solely by being in this program. If I can do it, coming from a different country not knowing a soul, then anyone who works hard at relationships can do it.

Graduate Students

The market clearly values our graduates as a large and expanding number of firms have recently hired, or sought to hire, our graduate and undergraduate real estate students.

Undergraduate Students

We do not offer an undergraduate major in Real Estate. However, many undergraduate business students take one or both of our undergraduate courses: REE 3043: Real Estate Analysis and REE 4905: Real Estate Investment Decision Making, and a growing number of students each year are completing the undergraduate minor in real estate.

Hiring Our Students

For information on recruiting UF graduate real estate students, email the MSRE Program, or email Kristy Smith of Business Career Services.
