“My time in the MSRE program was challenging yet rewarding. Having no real estate experience or exposure prior to enrolling, I was concerned about my ability to catch up, but between the instructors and course materials I was able to remain academically competitive. The Marshall Bennett Institute provides every opportunity for students to be successful: the abundance of scholarships, exposure to the various elements of the field and the personal investment in each student makes it extremely difficult to fail. I am thankful for my experience and I look forward to giving back to the program as well as witnessing the growth of the program.
