Calling all aspiring/current real estate professionals! As of today, there is officially an education center offering a Master of Real Estate Degree Program!Yes, you heard that right. This morning the National Association of Realtors announced that they were granted approval to offer a Master of Real Estate Degree program at the REALTOR® University in Illinois. In achieving this goal, one can definitely presume that the academic world has now officially tipped it's hat to the world of real estate. As an entity where a degree program and the supplementary education that comes with it is required to better service the industry, real estate is definitely an evolved body where a wealth of knowledge on the subject and industry will presumably give a cutting edge between agents.Read the full press release here: http://www.realtor.org/press_room/news_releases/2012/02/realtor_university_granted_approvalWill this educational option create a rift in the real estate world? Is there to be a divide between the agents with degrees and those without? Is this amount of education unnecessary, or should it be the new industry standard? Share your ideas with us on Twitter.
