Founded in 2005, the Jeffrey E. Smith Institute of Real Estate operates within the Department of Finance of the Robert J. Trulaske, Sr. College of Business. Its mission is to provide educational opportunity in real estate to students of the Trulaske College and to members of the professional real estate community. The Institute enhances the real estate curriculum by providing instructional support in the area of real estate, coordinating student internships with commercial real estate firms, and providing opportunities for visiting real estate practitioners to interface with students.
A real estate emphasis offers opportunities in fields that foster an entrepreneurial spirit with career options around the globe. The real estate emphasis is for students contemplating a career in real estate investment, property management, mortgage banking, or associated fields. Students selecting the real estate emphasis must be accepted into the BS BA with emphasis in finance and banking.
Aside from classroom activities, students will have many opportunities to network with real estate professionals. By mixing both classroom and experiential learning, our Real Estate emphasis program ensures success.
