UC Irvine - any good??


Socalchar
Hello, I am looking to do an MBA, and since I live in Orange County UC Irvine is not far from me, and it offers a concentration in real estate, which I would be interested in pursuing... But is the university's business school any good?

Are there other options in the southland? I know that UCLA has an MBA, but it is a little pricy. I would prefer to focus on real estate, if that's a possibility. Thanks for any advice.

What sort of role are you looking for?

Looking at: How to use LinkedIn to find the best school www.find-mba.com/board/33571 and following that approach it seems that real estate MBAs within 100 miles of UCI have typically studied at UCLA, UCB or USC.

PS Get into the best program you can ;-)

USC Marshall may be a good option: there are some real estate electives there, and I believe there's an actual concentration in the area. You could choose to pair the MBA with a MRED from the Price School, depending on your goals.

Agreed with mba hipster: Marshall could be a good option but there are several more schools in CA that offer concentrations in real estate, though not all are near Orange County.

Thanks all for your advice... I'll look at the USC program. My goal is to move from real estate sales into a more finance-oriented role, but I don't think that I will need a second master's degree.

Then the USC program would be perfect for you, since it covers investment, asset management, etc. And the Price school and its Lusk Center are really at the forefront in this area.

Otherwise, I would recommend a school that's strong in finance, but since you're limited to southern California there aren't that many options in this field.
