UNIBusiness Real Estate Program participantsThe UNIBusiness Real Estate Program ranks No. 12 among the top 30 best universities for real estate studies, according to rentapplication.com.

Rentapplication.com is known for comprehensive knowledge in the real estate industry, posting national rankings and a wide range of information regarding real estate in the U.S.

"It is an honor to be acknowledged on this top 30 list," said Arthur Cox, director of UNI's Center for Real Estate Education. "This is another external validation of the quality of our program. Our strong ties to the real estate industry clearly are a tremendous advantage to our students and employees."

UNIBusiness offers the only Bachelor of Arts degree in real estate in the state of Iowa. The extensive program prepares students for careers in the many disciplines within real estate, both commercial and residential, including brokerage, property management, valuation, mortgage underwriting, mortgage servicing and asset management.

"The quality that is recognized by this high ranking pertains to our program connecting academic learning with the actual application of those principles to real-world problems," said Cox. "Students aren't being trained in real estate, rather they are gaining an education where they develop the skills required in today's complex real estate industry."

The value of this program and the strength of its graduates do not go unnoticed; UNIBusiness real estate majors experience 100 percent job placement before graduation.
