The Value of the MCR Program Overview

Many of today’s corporations are committed to strengthening the knowledge, skills, and abilities of their corporate real estate (CRE) professionals locally and globally. The Master of Corporate Real Estate (MCR) designation provides essential skills that focus on critical business issues and the mission of the corporate real estate organization in relation to enterprise goals. Designed for CRE professionals with at least five years of experience, the MCR seminars are focused specifi cally on ensuring all participants have mastered technical skills within the CRE body of knowledge and have the ability to apply them to the strategic management of CRE. The designation is well-recognized within the profession and, increasingly, by executive-level corporate leaders outside of the CRE domain—a testament to the dedication, specialization, expertise, and knowledge of the Top-Rated Faculty and the designation holders.
