The new class will join a national network of more than 400 real estate finance professionals who have been acclaimed by the industry as its next generation of leaders.
"The future of our industry’s success lies with training and grooming the next generation of real estate finance professionals,” said MBA Chairman E.J. Burke. “Each one of this year’s graduates has taken an important next step in furthering their careers and strengthening their respective organizations. I congratulate them on completing the program and wish them well as they begin to apply the skills they have developed and honed."
