“When an employer looks at an applicant's resume, he or she likes to see proven quantitative skills,” says Rayburn. “As a citizen of Austin Peay, I'm excited about this new minor because it's cross-disciplinary. It will help students across a variety of majors by giving them documentation of their quantitative skillsa definite competitive advantage.”

Although real estate is considered a minor for the Bachelor of Business Administration degree, according to Rayburn, it would be a beneficial minor for many majors.

“Besides meeting the needs of students interested in careers in real estate and related industries, the real estate minor also could give students in more esoteric fields an opportunity to make a living while continuing to pursue the career that's their ultimate goal.”
