MSIRE and the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) Institute
The CCIM Institute of Chicago has approved FIU's MSIRE Program as a University Partner and part of the CCIM/University Fast Track Program. Under this agreement, CCIM will give CCIM candidates who attend and graduate from FIU's MSIRE program credit for 3 of the 4 required CCIM courses. MSIRE graduates would then only need to take the remaining one class, pass the CCIM comprehensive exam, and satisfy the organization's experience requirements to earn their CCIM designation. With the University Partner agreement MSIRE students wanting to ultimately earn a CCIM designation will save at least $5,000 on the cost of earning the CCIM designation and will have access to CCIM programs and materials such as the CCIM "site to do business" which allows for substantial access to market databases. The CCIM designation is one of the most highly recognized professional designations in commercial brokerage.
Florida International University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), the regional agency that grants institution-wide accreditation. The College of Business Administration and the School of Accounting are accredited separately by AACSB International.
