Real Estate Alumni Reception
The network of Columbia Business School real estate graduates is exceptionally strong and growing. Each year, hundreds of alumni reconnect with former classmates and meet new friends at the Annual Real Estate Alumni Reception, the largest real estate alumni activity at the School. To get a feel for the event, take a look at the 2013 report and slideshow below.
