More Students Studying Real Estate

Like the market itself, real-estate education is hot. But some experts warn this industry is headed for a decline.

"Real-estate education is red hot, thanks to a booming real-estate market nationwide. As a result, colleges everywhere are adding new programs and building on existing ones to keep up with industry and student demand.Some experts warn, however, that the market may have hit its peak - and the field could be headed for a decline.

...While real estate schools specifically train students to sell houses, most college programs concentrate on the commercial end - appraisals, development, investments, and management."
