The Clemson MRED Student

Clemson MRED students come from a broad range of disciplines.

We have a strict selection process that requires students to demonstrate exceptional track records in undergraduate study, work experience and leadership endeavors.

To maintain the personal scale of the program, entering classes are kept to fewer than 20 students per year. Starting in 2004, the program has grown from 6, 13, 18 and 20 students admitted annually from approximately 29 states and Korea and China and 73 undergraduate institutions. The median age of students is 26, from 21-50 years of age. Competition is keen for up to 20 students to be admitted annually.

Our graduates have obtained excellent permanent positions typically as Development Associates with such firms as Forest City Enterprises, CBL & Assoc., Novare Group, Carter Real Estate, CB Richard Ellis, Starwood, Regent Partners, Grubb & Ellis | The Furman Co., Essex Property Trust, Struever Brothers Eccles & Rouse, and others. 

Our growing alumni association is already paying dividends for networking and job opportunities. Furthermore, we have 35 development professionals on our Advancement Board assisting in future employment opportunities.

We like to provide our incoming and current students with the support they need to excel professionally.
