School is great, but the education that the Nathan S. Collier Master of Science in Real Estate (MSRE) program provides is beyond the scope of school. From the get-go you are learning about industry fundamentals and most specifically how to network. In real estate, networking is everything, and the MSRE program trains that specific skill. One way they do that is by allowing you to network with extremely successful industry leaders that comprise the University of Florida Real Estate Advisory Board. This is something that is more valuable than words can really express.

My first time getting to network with the board members was at the University of Florida Trends & Strategies Conference. At this two-day long event in Orlando, you get to meet with the brightest and most successful real estate professionals the industry has to offer. These people are extremely eager to meet with students and help in any way they can. Having the ability to talk to such successful people that were once in your shoes gives you an opportunity discuss your thoughts and ideas that may one day turn into a successful career. These connections you make can lead to internships or even potential job offers.

The opportunities that the MSRE program provides, outside the scope of school, is what makes this program so special. Although I have only been in the program for one semester, I already feel exponentially more prepared for the real world than all four years of my undergraduate classes combined. The real-world skills that are continually worked on make you more prepared to leave school and be successful in the industry of real estate.

If learning inside and out of the classroom is important to you in a real estate degree, request information to learn more about the Nathan S. Collier Master of Science in Real Estate today.
