    MBA or MSRED

    Hey Guys,

    I just finished my undergradate degree in political science and now I am wondering what to do next. I am very interested in real estate development, international development, and business. I have looked at different MBA and MSRED programs mainly on the east coast, but I am open to other regions. How do I get started in a career dealing with real estate development/international development? I am interested in both commercial and residential. Any suggestions and advice would be much appreciated.

    What to do next? Go get experience!

    A very good friend at USC Marshall/USC SPPD MRED graduated college in 2005. Worked at CBRE for 3 years, got the experience he needed and did the dual degree.

    If you want to go to a top B-school, you need experience. If you want to go to a top M/SRED program, you need experience.

    haha it is that simple! what kind of experience do you recommend? Since it wasn't the career I had planned to enter, I really don't know where to start. Which do you recommend more MBA or MSRED? I don't know if I could handle a dual degree program, but I had heard that USC has an amazing program as does Cornell I think. I know I need the experience, I just don't know what are the most common entry level positions or if I could even get one.
