Welcome to the CU Real Estate Center at the Leeds School of Business.

Founded in 1989 by a passionate group of local real estate leaders from Denver and Boulder, the Center's mission is to foster and develop aspiring real estate professionals. We offer rigorous coursework, co-curricular activities, a personalized approach to networking and mentorship, and hands-on learning experiences in a top business school. Our students graduate knowing they're prepared to make a positive impact. Our employer network hires nearly every graduate of our program—perhaps its most important validation.
