Best MBA/MSRE Programs for REIB/REPE Jobs

Wondering what MSRE/MBA programs have the best exit opps in the REIB/REPE spaces. And when I say REIB/REPE I am more curious to hear about placement into larger firms that crank out deals (on the REIB side)/have lots of capital to deploy (on the REPE side) than smaller boutiques.

Obviously M7 MBA programs will have strong exit opps (for the most part) but I am more curious about other programs that are not talked about as often - for example, one I have heard great things about is UNC's MBA Program. If anyone has anecdotes, please feel free to post or PM me if you do not want to share publicly.

These links are super helpful, thank you so much.

Does anyone know anything about University of Wisconsin's MBA program and its placement into real estate? I know their undergrad program kills it and arguably has the best placement rate of all schools.

It's a good program. I know several people who have come out of Wisconsin's MBA program with a focus on RE. It places pretty well in the Midwest. However, the opportunities available are definitely a step below higher tier programs. A good stat on this point is the salary for newly minted MBA in the RE field. There can be a 40k - 50k difference between Wisco and other programs.

Wisconsin was recently debating whether to stop offering full time MBAs/shut down the full time altogether. Read this in the last year.

Doesn't related pick up a few guys from Ross every year? Or is that just some rumor?
