Florida International University offers both undergraduate and graduate programs in real estate, one of fewer than seventy-five universities in the United States to do so.
Florida International University’s College of Business Administration and its faculty are recognized internationally as leaders in the production and dissemination of real estate knowledge and are shaping this debate. In fact, the Hollo School of Real at FIU is ranked #1 in USA and #2 Globally for Real Estate Research. Our MSIRE Cohorts have been nominated in the top 3 of the Argus National Challenges.
FIU is also one of less than about 20 universities in North American that offer a graduate program in real estate. FIU offers the Master of Science in International Real Estate (MSIRE) Miami and the Flex Master of Science in Real Estate (Flex MSIRE) Programs and is part of the CCIM University Partnership Program. The two graduate programs are integrated and offer students within the region and globally access to a top Masters program in real estate. MSIRE Miami is their Miami based program and their Flex MSIRE program is an internet based program with specific integration with the MSIRE Miami program. FIU is enhancing access to sophisticated graduate education in real estate using state of the art technology affecting location.
