ULI has a robust set of programs and offerings that can help colleges and universities provide its students with a comprehensive introduction to the field of commercial real estate. Whether your school has an active real estate degree program and can benefit from providing students with additional programming and access to mentors and experts, or needs an out-of-the-box real estate curriculum, we’re here to customize a plan for your university that opens up access to the ULI programs and offerings that help you meet your goals, and nurture the aspirations of your students.
