The Professionals’ Choice for Real Estate Jobs

Lifetime Earnings

We have started updating SelectLeaders Real Estate School List of programs offering degrees in real estate. While universities often provide graduation rates and average starting salaries, the real question students need to consider is, “What do you expect make in your lifetime from the major you choose?” Our Job Network partner, CoreNet Global, the leading Professional Association for Corporate Real Estate, studies the lifetime earning potential for Corporate Real Estate professionals, many of whom have Facilities and Property Management skillsets. Google, Microsoft, names you do not associate with our industry, post on our Job Network because every corporation has opportunities to manage their real estate. Yet, students are often unaware of this sector and its earning potential. The authors of a recent study on “How Do College Students Respond to Public Financial Information about Earnings” were interviewed by the Wall Street Journal. They concluded while schools tout starting salaries, “The gaps in (lifetime) earnings between majors are even larger.”
