An in-depth, specialized education. A summer internship that provides hands-on experience in your area of interest. A dedicated team providing guidance as you work to secure your next real estate career move. These elements combine during the second year of the program as students work closely with the career management staff, their alumni mentors, and their faculty advisors to identify and secure their next position.
Some students seek a full-time position in the company where they interned; others broaden their search and utilize the extensive Cornell network to locate the ideal position that will utilize their specialized skills. Baker grads secure their post-Cornell positions across the country and around the world, depending upon their geographic preferences.
