Fall 2023 Extended Open House

Want to earn your master’s degree in real estate development (MSRED) from MIT? Our multidisciplinary master’s program investigates every field that impacts the real estate industry and is built on three intellectual pillars: Finance and Economics; Design and Development; Sustainability and Technology.

The MSRED Program hosts an extended open house on-campus each year during the month of October. This immersive experience allows prospective applicants to sit-in on classes, participate in information sessions, speak with current students, faculty, and staff, and get an in-depth glance at life as an MSRED student at the Center for Real Estate. The Fall MSRED Extended Open House will be held October 23-25, 2023.
