Real Estate Circle
Columbia Business School’s Real Estate Circle is a growing community of alumni who join the group to enhance their professional and personal networks, participate in educational lectures, and contribute to student fellowships. This helps to ensure that Columbia Business School continues to attract the brightest scholars, who go on to enrich our alumni network.
Members of the Circle are at various levels in their careers and are making their mark in all segments of the real estate industry. Two levels of membership are available – Circle Leader and, for graduates within the past five years, Circle Associate. There are a number of benefits affiliated with each contribution level.
Throughout the year, Circle programming offers members the opportunity to attend networking and social events, including Circle Academy executive education sessions. These breakfasts bring alumni together with a leading academic or industry expert who presents thought- and discussion-provoking content. Topics need not be real estate-focused but are relevant to current practice.
If you would like to join Columbia Business School's Real Estate Circle, please complete the pledge form or contact Kate Kerrigan for more information.
