Partners in the Real Estate PoD contribute in four areas: career development, financial support, curriculum development, and teaching.
Our partners are very supportive of the experiential environment, by providing access to internships and career opportunities. The course of study is carefully developed to prepare students to perform at the highest level and be outstanding contributors.
Partners in our Real Estate PoD are committed to sustained financial support to deliver the best preparation and experiences. Fellowships will be an attractive option for high-achieving students to work closely with our partners.
Long the hallmark of the W&M MBA, curriculum will be developed in collaboration with industry partners, bringing their demand perspectives to the learning environment. The goal is to prepare students for the demands of the market. Partners will bring the needs of the market in “real time” to the program.
Mason has a long history of involving companies in teaching courses and the PoD will continue to perfect this. Currency and innovation will be the focus in the classroom. Industry professionals will be immersed throughout the program, working side-by-side with faculty and one-on-one with students.
