Adult students from various heritages listening to a male speaker with only the back of his head showing

"It wasn’t until I started talking to other people through work and at networking events that I realized the value of having an MSRE.  I never saw the value of an MBA, but it turns out a specialized graduate degree in real estate is extremely valuable as a real estate professional.  I feel that I’ve gotten a much more in-depth education specifically focused on the real estate industry that would be unmatched by an MBA, even with a specialization in real estate.  Additionally, the value of being at DePaul in downtown Chicago is a great asset to anyone who wants to work in the city.  The program definitely has a Chicago-focus, through guest speakers and professional resources, which I think will be extremely beneficial to my career here in the city."
