Graduates succeed in the field of real estate in various areas including: development, acquisitions, institutional investment, private equity, finance, affordable housing, consulting, and the public sector. A notable amount of graduates also pursue entrepreneurial projects. The majority of MSRED alumni live and work in New York City, but the number of graduates working in other domestic markets and international locations increases each year.
