About the Center
The Paul Milstein Center for Real Estate delivers the renowned MBA Real Estate program at Columbia Business School, offering an innovative, robust, industry-lead curriculum and a comprehensive research program led by fulltime faculty experts. Leveraging premier intellectual capital and its New York location at the heart of global capital markets, Columbia Business School is “At the Very Center of Business.” The mission of the MBA Real Estate Program and Paul Milstein Center for Real Estate is to integrate theoretical and practical knowledge of real estate as it relates to the everchanging global market for real estate finance and investment.
The Center, which was endowed by the Milstein Family in 2001, furthers that mission by delivering compelling courses, impactful research, a wide variety of student and alumni activities, and directs all initiatives and functions related to real estate at Columbia Business School, inclusive of employer relations and career advising. The Center also provides and underwrites tools and resources for students and faculty to use both in and out of the classroom and to conduct research.
Beyond the classroom, curating more than 50 annual programs and activities and interweaving a powerful real estate community throughout, the Center provides a coveted platform for sharing expertise and strengthening networks among its various constituents, presenting specific opportunities for stimulating exchange among students, alumni, faculty members, and the real estate industry at large.
