Welcome to Real Estate at Florida International University (FIU). The unique global real estate profile of Miami and South Florida sets the stage for debate and dialogue on the place of real estate within society domestically and globally. Our program empowers our real estate students to excel in a fast paced competitive real estate business environment.
FIU is one of fewer than 75 universities in the United States that offers an undergraduate major in real estate. Students often work in real estate while enrolled and can benefit from FIU’s excellent relations within the industry. FIU is also one of less than about 20 universities in North America that offer a graduate program in real estate a Masters in Science in International Real Estate, MSIRE. The MSIRE program uniquely offers a combination of face to face and live internet classes offering flexibility to our students whom many are busy professionals.
