I am very new of this forum and I start to thank you very much in advance for your answers.
I am italian and I have been admitted at the MS in real estate at NYU. I saw some reviews which are very good. However I have some questions.
I got in Italy a bachelor degree (in italy is 3 years long) in management engineering (final mark is above 60-65 percentile), and took GMAT getting 600 (verbal 36%, quant 73%). I have been always keen on finance/economics but I have also a strong passion in real estate business because of my family design company.
I know that my scores( gmat and gpa) are not the top but neither bad so I did some applications to some master in finance and master in real estate (finance specialized).
All of this stuff to explain you my situation and why I will ask you the following questions.
0) at the moment real estate is my favourite finance field. However I am hesitant because this master is very specific... and sincerly, I do not know if in future, studying this subject more in depth, my interests will be always the same.
So.. since in the current situation I cannot aspire to an high level msc in finance and I am anyway keen on real estate I think that enroll to this nyu master which I think is a very high level master is the best solution. In addition to this, worldwide I have many contacts of RE developers thanks to my family company so in real estate field I would land on my feet.
1) so... do you think this master can fit to my plans? somebody who just did it or only have an impression can tell me how much strong is the finance component?
2) do you think that after finishing this master and perhaps working 2-3 years in real estate finance enviroment, obviously only if I were not satisfied of my job, I could switch in another finance field?
3) I saw another advantage of doing this master in NY even if not decisive for my master choice. My gmat score is low because of verbal component and I grant you that for a non-native english speaker is the most difficult one. My IELTS is 6.5 now and probably living in US for at least 2 years I would probably lear english very well and be more confident to get an higher score in verbal gmat section.
Finally I really thank you if you answer me... I am very open to receive any kind of advice and your opinion about my reasoning.
and sorry for some english grammar mistakes but I wrote very fast for my standards :D:D
