The Center for Real Estate at the UCI Paul Merage School of Business continues to make positive contributions in its missions of education, academic research and meaningful industry outreach to the academic and professional business communities. Professional and student educational programs serve as an important cornerstone of the center’s growth and vitality. Our faculty, students and affiliated professionals share a common interest in furthering understanding of the ways in which we can harness knowledge to create a sustainable urban future. Concerned with the success of the enterprise, the industry, and the “deal,” we consider it imperative to succeed and grow in a manner that is sustainable and in the context of longer-run and broader societal objectives as well as short-term profitability goals. We recognize that technology and innovation are important drivers of change and must be central elements in real estate decision-making.
The Center is also an integral and indispensable component of the program in Real Estate and Urban Development at UCI.
