MSRED - Internship and Employment Opportunities

For a well-rounded real estate development education, we encourage our students to pursue internships during their course of study, and we support them in their search for employment. 

Students may apply for one-time approval to get up to 3-credit hours for internships demonstrating substantial individual accomplishment as reflected in a report, study, or analysis completed for the employer.  In addition, we encourage students to pursue full-time paid internships for the summer between their first and second year of study.  Our faculty and professional advisers have significant national industry relationships, and make special efforts to assist students in obtaining internships and permanent jobs.  As a result, our students have had an excellent record of success in the job market.

Our students and graduates get top internships and full-time, post-graduate employment with some of the best firms there are in our industry.
