Fox’s Real Estate program is ranked No. 19 nationally by RentApplication.com, which published in June its first-annual list of the top-30 undergraduate real estate programs in the United States. The ranking lauds the program’s “lean toward the financial sector.” The Real Estate program is housed within Fox’s Finance department.

“We are delighted to learn that Fox’s Real Estate program has been ranked among such elite company,” said Dr. Forrest Huffman, Professor of Finance and Director of Fox’s Real Estate program. “Fox’s real estate students are consistently recognized by the prestigious student honorary organization, Alpha Sigma Gamma, for their academic achievements. Our students hone a variety of skills that will enable them to become leaders in all aspects of the real estate industry. Inclusion in this rankings report demonstrates the caliber of our program and students on a national level.”

The Real Estate program at Fox prepares students for careers in a variety of sectors, like real estate valuation, mortgage lending, residential and commercial brokerage, corporate real estate analysis, and beyond.

Fox is also home to the Temple Real Estate Organization (TREO), one of more than two-dozen student-professional organizations. TREO bridges the gap between the academic and business professional communities in real estate, finance, development, architecture, urban planning, law, and land economics, while also fostering scholarship in those fields.
