The Kislak Real Estate Institute at Monmouth University was established in order to meet the educational needs of the real estate industry in a university setting. Students can obtain a Bachelor of Science in Business with a concentration in real estate. Graduate students can obtain a Master’s in Business Administration with a concentration in real estate. It is the only such program offered at any New Jersey college or university. The Kislak Real Estate Institute also provides a learning opportunity for real estate industry professionals to continue their education through the Real Estate Certificate program. A number of scholarship funds have been endowed and are available to real estate students.
In the continuing evolution of the Kislak Real Estate Institute, additional course offerings are being planned and research in topics of interest and value to the real estate industry are being evaluated.
One of the founding principles of the Kislak Real Estate Institute was to create a locus that brings together the wide range of organizations that share a common interest in the real estate
field, including commercial and residential developers, financial institutions, architects, insurance companies, property managers, attorneys, planners, appraisers, regulators and others. In addition, other non-profit real estate and land use related organizations have held conferences on campus and links to such organizations are being forged.
As we celebrate our 21st Leadership Excellence Award reception we look back at the past two decades as testimony to the vision, dedication, and support that the real estate community has provided to the Real Estate Institute. We gratefully acknowledge your efforts and thank you for your commitment to Monmouth University.
