Real Estate Forum

The MBA Real Estate Program Advisory Board initiated the Columbia Business School Real Estate Forum in 1995. The forum is an invitation-only group of leading real estate executives who meet several times each year to candidly discuss issues of strategic importance to the real estate industry. Forum members lend their support to the Paul Milstein Center through classroom participation, participation in extracurricular activities, and contributions to case production and research. Selected forum members serve on the MBA Real Estate Program Advisory Board, which meets once a year to provide comprehensive feedback to the faculty director and the dean. Current forum members are listed below.
