Real estate students who took a survey on their performance at the University of Minnesota’s MBA program scored above average on the SAT, according to a new report from U.S. News & World Report.
“We believe our students’ overall academic performance in the real estate industry is exceptional, and our students outperformed the national average on many measures,” said Tom Anderson, a vice president of business development at the U.N. Development Program.
“We think their overall performance reflects the breadth and depth of their experience and knowledge in the industry.”
The MBA program at the university is known for offering a broad range of professional training that includes research, business development, finance and accounting.
The results of the study come as Minneapolis real estate is poised to become a top real estate market in the nation.
In addition to the new campus, the university has been renovating the old St. Paul Building for more than a decade.
The new St. Louis Center is also scheduled to open in 2019.
The university also announced last month that it will be adding two more buildings to its existing portfolio.
Minnesota real estate schools are also ranked among the top 50 colleges and universities in the U, according U.C. San Diego’s College of Business and Engineering.
The rankings, released earlier this year, are based on data from more than 2,400 undergraduate and graduate students at public universities across the country.
