Does anyone have any experience with real estate developers and/or real estate focused private equity firms and what MBA programs they recruit from? Since I have a strong desire to work in this field post-MBA, I want to make sure I'm applying to the right MBA programs. Thanks!

Our users shared good schools to attend if you are interested in pursuing real estate after business school.
- MIT Sloan
- UCLA Anderson
- Berkeley Haas
Aside from these suggested schools, our users pointed out that real estate is very local and emphasized that what matters in recruitment is connections and experience in the area.
Our users also point out that an MBA is a smart investment if you want to do real estate finance. However, a MSRE or a specialized real estate degree is better if you're interested in the development side.
Check out the video below from Georgetown that explains the MSRE or Master of Science in Real Estate degree.
You can also learn more about Real Estate in our Real Estate Forum here on WSO.
