2016 Mentor Breakfasts2016 Mentor Breakfasts

In October, the Burnham-Moores Center hosted two mentor breakfasts; one for the undergraduate real estate students and a second for the Master of Science in Real Estate students.

The undergraduate real estate mentor breakfast was held on October 13. This year, 26 School of Business real estate students are participating in the mentor program. Each student is paired with a real estate professional working in their respective field of interest. Mentors and students are encouraged to meet at least three times during the year. Meetings include site tours, job shadowing and networking with other industry professionals. The program serves the dual purpose of enabling real estate students to learn more about the industry while simultaneously creating an avenue for USD real estate alumni to give back.
