CU REAL ESTATE CENTER
Welcome to the CU Real Estate Center at the Leeds School of Business
CUREC is one of the nation’s premier real estate centers. The Center is a powerful collaboration between CU’s Leeds School of Business and the real estate industry, designed to both train top leaders in the real estate industry and spearhead thought leader- ship in the global property sector.
A key resource for graduate and undergraduate students, the Center plays a significant role in helping students network with industry professionals and obtain internships and full- time jobs. In addition to raising and directing scholarship dollars to students, the Center also sponsors student business treks to visit real estate firms in major domestic and international markets, and sponsors critical skills development with courses in Advanced Excel, ARGUS, USGBC LEED certification, and real estate case analysis and presentation (which is preparation for international real estate case competitions). The program graduates top real estate professionals prepared to add value for their employer on the first day of their job.
Our real estate “major” (area of emphasis) in the business school’s undergraduate program complements our MBA in real estate and an exceptional one-year Masters of Science in Real Estate (MSRE) degree. Every year the Leeds School of Business graduates and places over 100 exceptionally-educated professionals into the global real estate industry. We invite you to explore our academic programs for your own career development.
Once in the workforce, our CU-educated real estate professionals retain lifelong access to the Center’s networking, professional learning and career development resources through our real estate alumni network.
Since graduating our first class of real estate MBAs almost 25 years ago, many of our alumni have become our greatest supporters and mentors to the next generation. These alumni along with our broad base of industry supporters truly make CUREC the outstanding Center it is.
