Real Estate Circle


The Columbia Real Estate Circle is an exclusive alumni-only group that provides unique networking opportunities and educational events for its membersPrograms are designed to encourage network building and professional development, and often include monthly market updates, access to Columbia University faculty thought leaders, intimate gatherings with leading real estate practitioners and business leaders, and exclusive behind the scenes tours of signature real estate projects. 

Members of the Circle also steer the leadership and program development for the annual Columbia Business School Real Estate Symposium


Membership currently spans 40 graduation years, including alumni from across the US and more recently touching the UK and Latin America. We are thrilled to see this international network of CBS real estate professionals grow! Members of the Circle are at various levels in their careers and are making their mark in all segments of the real estate industry.

What Does a Commitment Mean?

An annual commitment to the Real Estate Circle is a tax-deductible gift to the Milstein Center and the MBA Real Estate Program and therefore does not correlate with a specific number of events or programs you participate in. A gift to the Circle supports education, research and industry engagement at Columbia Business School, and has a deep and immediate impact on the Center's mission to educate the next generation of business leaders about the practice of real estate within an ever-changing global market.
