The Center for Real Estate has in place both a Student Host Program and an Alumni Host Program.  Any prospective applicant looking to learn more is able to tap into the unparalleled resources that are our students and alumni.

MSRED Student Host Program

A visit to the MIT Center for Real Estate provides you with another opportunity to learn more about the MSRED program, students, faculty and staff. It’s a great way to get a real feel for what it’s like at MIT. We encourage you to take full advantage of your visit by sitting in on a class or two and meeting current students, faculty and staff.

A typical visit consists of:

  • Checking in with MIT/MSRED Admissions staff in Building 9-343 to have any of your questions answered. (Directions and map.)
  • Visiting a class with your student host.

Please take note of the following important information related to visiting the MSRED Program at the Center for Real Estate:

  • Please schedule your visit at least one week in advance to ensure proper arrangements.
  • Wait to make any travel plans until you’ve received confirmation of your visit date.
  • The Student Host Program runs from:
    • Fall Semester: Mid- September – End of November
    • Spring Semester: Early February – Early May
    • Visits will not be available during major holidays or Institute closings.  For a complete list, please see the MIT Academic Calendar and the MIT Home Page for special closings.

Alumni Host Program

The alumni host program is made up of alumni volunteers from across the United States. It is designed for those who wish to learn more about the MIT Master of Science in Real Estate Development (MSRED), but also provides a unique opportunity to get a closer look at some of the Real Estate careers that our graduates possess.

Through the alumni host program you will have the opportunity to speak with an alumni either by phone or, in some cases, in person. Alumni can offer a unique perspective on what it is like to go through the MSRED program, as well as let you know how the MSRED degree has impacted their careers.

The Alumni Host Program is currently available in most cities in the US and many countries abroad.

How to Participate in the Alumni Host Program:

Fill out the form below, making sure to include your current city and state to submit your request. A staff member will then contact the most appropriate alumni for your geographic area. The alumni will then contact you directly about setting up a phone call or meeting, if appropriate.
