College and University Programs
While college education is not a requirement for beginning a career in real estate management, it is highly recommended. Many colleges and universities offer real estate and property management courses, more and more offer degrees in real estate, and a few offer degrees in property management. Likewise, a bachelor’s degree or a master’s degree in business administration can be an excellent means to progress in the field. Because real estate management is competitive and increasingly complex, the future will demand exceptional performance from practitioners, including extensive, never-ending education.
