Undergraduate and Graduate Real Estate Mentor Breakfasts

Tuesday, October 31, 2017TOPICS: Alumni

The Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate's mentorship program pairs real estate industry executives with USD real estate students according to shared areas of interest. Mentors and students discuss everything from academic progress to long-term career goals, while learning about challenges and exciting new trends in real estate. Many mentoring relationships continue long after students have graduated and entered the industry.

On October 31 and November 2, the Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate and its Real Estate Alumni Association (REAA) hosted the annual undergraduate and graduate, Master of Science in Real Estate (MSRE), mentor breakfasts respectively. These breakfasts serve as kick-off events for the mentorship programs.

This year, approximately 40 undergraduate and more than 20 MSRE students are participating in the mentorship programs. Mentors are comprised of USD real estate alumni and other professionals working within the real estate industry. The students and their mentors meet several times throughout the semester for project site tours, job shadowing and introductions to other industry professionals.

The mentorship program serves two goals. First, it enables real estate students to learn more about the industry and learn about the mentor’s career path. Second, it enables USD real estate alumni to give back to the students and provide guidance, motivation, support and role modeling.

If you are a USD real estate alumni and would like to be a mentor, the Burnham-Moores Center and the REAA Executive Board would like to hear from you. To learn more, contact Jackie Greulich, student and career services manager, at (619) 260-7619. Join the Real Estate Alumni Association.
