Hey everyone, I lightly touched on this in an earlier post and wanted to hear your thoughts.
I'm still in talks for an internship position at CB/JLL/CWK type firm down in DC and have been planning a plan B option in case I don't get hired for what I want.
I'm currently applying for a Master's in International Politics at a university in Belgium because it's affordable for me (4.000 euros), I don't need to take the Gmat, as real estate becomes more institutionalized there's a greater need for a graduate's degree, also I studied abroad at that same university and have maintained connections there.
I'm finishing up my bachelor's in finance and I think this degree and going abroad for it is an angle to differentiate myself because with a Master's in International Politics the course load comprises of law, government, economics, and sustainable development which I think if I package it right in an interview, I can connect it back to real estate. Also take a year's long Master's will give me the ability to have some fun while buying me more time to apply for the jobs I want because I started late on the process last semester due to a bout of depression and stress from the online schooling.
So, has anyone got a degree in college that wasn't directly related to CRE/finance and was still able to land in a decent role after graduation?
