Return on Investment

*Since the inception of the program nearly 40 years ago, the placement rate for students within 90 days of graduation has been 100% most every year. In 2017, we achieved a 97.4% rate. This success can be largely attributed to the Aggie Real Estate Network – alumni who mentor our students.

Jumpstart Career Path

Employers note that graduates of this program accelerate faster in career progression because of the strong foundational understanding of important real estate concepts and focus on personal brand image. Students are able to obtain meaningful internships that assist the student in choosing the best career path.

Quick Payback on Educational Investment

Average starting salaries of $59,000 can be misleading as many real estate careers contain an incentivized pay structure. Recent starting salaries have ranged from $45,000 to $80,000, with compensation levels accelerating quickly thereafter.

“They say you only use 5% of what you learn in graduate school but I use 95%. The program is spot on and current regarding issues. I use my education everyday – the law that I learned from Dr. Elmore, the development practices from Dr. Haney and Cydney Donnell’s capital market class. I am living my dream life.”

– Nick Craig, Director of Finance/ Development Partner for Archangel Capital Partners, LLC, MRE Class of 2007
