Exciting News from Va Tech Real Estate Program

ICSC student membership/leadership development department is excited to announce news from the new Virginia Tech real estate department.

The Virginia Association of REALTORS® — following the initiative of its Leadership Academy — has partnered with Virginia Tech Program in Real Estate to launch a new student internship program for real estate students.

Over 80 brokers from across the commonwealth signed up to participate, covering specialties such as residential, commercial, land, and property management.

The internship program is designed to give students seeking a degree in real estate an opportunity to obtain first-hand, practical knowledge of the industry through direct exposure to day-to-day operations of brokerages across the state, benefiting both the student and the firm.

Benefits to the students include bridging the gap between classroom theory and real world application, discovering specific areas of interest within the field, and developing a professional network.

The Virginia Tech Program in Real Estate offers a comprehensive interdisciplinary bachelor of science degree in real estate that builds on existing strengths in six colleges – the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, College of Architecture and Urban Studies, Pamplin College of Business, College of Engineering, College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences, and College of Natural Resources and Environment. The program’s experiential courses integrate disciplines such as finance, law, construction, and property management by examining commercial, residential, retail, and mixed-use property from initial project conceptualization through sale or management. Graduates of the program are prepared to enter the Real Estate industry and make immediate professional contributions.
