Real Estate at UW-Madison again ranked #2 by U.S. News

The real estate program at the Wisconsin School of Business was again recognized among the top three in the country in this week's U.S.News & World Report's 2012 rankings of Best Colleges.

The University of Wisconsin-Madison ranked 10th among public institutions. The undergraduate business program was tied for 14th overall. In 2011, the university ranked 13th among public institutions.

From the UW-Madison press release:

"These rankings are an important national tool used by students and their families when choosing an institution of higher education, and it's an honor for UW-Madison to be recognized among the nation's top universities," says Provost Paul M. DeLuca, Jr.

The strength of the university's undergraduate experience was recognized by its peers, who were asked to nominate institutions with strong programs in certain student academic service areas. UW-Madison was again among the top five most mentioned institutions when it comes to learning communities and undergraduate research/creative projects.

The rankings also noted UW-Madison's undergraduate academic reputation, which takes in to account perceptions from peers and high school guidance counselors. In this category, UW-Madison's score was 30th highest overall and 7th highest among public institutions.

  1. Real estate agents are the people you deal with face to face when buying or selling property. These are the people on the front lines of the real estate market and perform such tasks (amongst others) as showing homes to perspective buyers and negotiating transactions on behalf of their client. Real estate agents often work on a 100% commission basis, their income dependent upon their ability to find property suitable for their clients and closing transactions. Tinley Park realtors
