Internships and Careers in Real Estate

Employers: Recruiting Real Estate students

Marquette University students studying the real estate major are trained in basic understanding and problem solving in development, finance, valuation, and management. Applying these concepts to real-world situations is an important part of their education, and the Real Estate Program is always looking for employers to partner with in training or hiring our students. If you have a career or internship opportunity and are looking to recruit our students, we are here to help! Please contact Chris Korjenek, Associate Director of the Center for Real Estate, to speak more about your needs. Chris can be reached at cre@marquette.edu or (414) 288-1746.

Placement Statistics

One of the significant roles for the Center for Real Estate is to assist students with their First Destination jobs. We work closely with the Business Career Center and employers to post meaningful jobs for the students as they begin their careers. While job postings for entry level positions has slowed somewhat pending the upcoming election and year-end business decisions, our students continue to be successful in finding positions, including internships.

We have three students who graduated in August of 2016 and four more who will be graduating in December 2016.
