The Marshall Bennett Institute of Real Estate at Roosevelt University (MBIRE) launched a new initiative that allows incoming graduate students to be awarded up to 12 credit hours of academic credit toward a Master of Science in Real Estate degree for certain industry certifications or experience. This Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) program becomes effective starting with the spring 2021 semester, which begins Jan. 19.
“This new policy gives students a leg up in receiving their degree faster and MBIRE a competitive advantage in the marketplace as we’re the only local real estate school to offer a PLA program,” said Collete English Dixon, executive director of MBIRE.
Under the PLA program, credit may be earned for one or more of the following four courses:
• real estate process;
• real estate quantitative methods;
• urban land economics/real estate economics; and
• real estate finance and investments.
