The move by another major Canadian university to introduce a real estate-centred program has Realtors divided, with some suggesting it will fail to professionalize an industry where licensing may be too easy to win.

    There's nothing wrong with using formal post-secondary education to advance the professionalism in our industry. Far too many of us have degrees in fields that have nothing to do with buying and selling on what is a very complex transaction. A BA in philosophy won't cut it.

    Rubbish - what the heck do you need a degree for? It's just an excuse for people who want to put off actually getting out there AND WORKING to stay in the classroom
