Being a part of UTD’s Real Estate Program has been an eye-opening experience. My advice to anyone interested in the program is to join the Real Estate Club. The club first exposed me to the program and has not only allowed me to network with industry professionals but also taught me the fundamentals of both residential and multi-family real estate. Read More

I have been interested in real estate for the majority of my life now. I grew up in awe of my mother’s career as a broker. When it came time to pick a college, UT Dallas was my first choice because of its great reputation and high rankings. Soon after being admitted to the School of Management, the Herbert D. Weitzman Institute for Real Estate was established. When I heard the news, I immediately joined the real estate program, pursuing a degree in Business Administration with a concentration in real estate. Read More

The Real Estate Concentration offered at the Graduate and Undergraduate level is one of the best, if not, the best concentration to choose from. Aside from the transferability of skills and knowledge between different career paths in real estate. The program director along with the associate director and adjunct professors have copious years of experience in the industry that allows them to tailor their respective course material to single out the most beneficial topics for students. Their ability to bring in their personal expertise into class examples helps to learn new topics with ease by knowing that what they are teaching you will be helpful in practice not just in theory. Read More

I had no clue where to start but knew completing my bachelor’s would be the best launching pad. Looking at the regional options, the Jindal School of Management (JSOM) at UTD was by far the wisest choice for its national and global ranking. To top it off it came with the perks of being a public institution. Read More
