The Graduate Credential is a new program that offers an opportunity for those who have completed a Bachelor of Arts degree to obtain training at a graduate level to advance their careers in the real estate industry. The classes taken can also be a transition into the two graduate real estate degrees: Master of Business Administration with Concentration in Real Estate (MBA/RE) or Master of Science in Real Estate (MSRE). The program is offered in the Marshall Bennett Institute of Real Estate in the Walter E. Heller College of Business. The Institute operates the Urban Retail Properties Professional Development and Research Center, which supports students through scholarships, guest lecturers, mentors, job networking, and library resources in the New Wabash building.
Requirements are the same as for the MBA/RE (Concentration in Real Estate) or Master of Science in Real Estate (MSRE).
Candidates are eligible for real estate scholarship assistance under the same requirements as master degree candidates, but at lower amounts adjusted to the reduced number of classes.
All credential candidates are required to complete the five classes within two academic years.
Credential candidates can transfer to an MBA/RE or MSRE degree program at any point in the program or upon completion. Courses taken are eligible for transfer into either degree program.
