Center Reaches Beyond Fisher to Leverage Partnerships
When it comes to preparing the next generation of real estate leaders, collaboration is key. As a result, a number of innovative courses offered through the Center for Real Estate Education and Research leverage partnerships within The Ohio State University.

“Business students are partnered with architecture students, who are partnered with law students, who are partnered with construction management students,” said center executive director Ken Gold. “These collaborations create boundless opportunities for students to learn and challenge each other by solving real development projects in the Columbus area.”

During the 2010-2011 academic year, the center collaborated with a wide array of colleges, centers, and schools at the university to create a holistic curriculum covering topics from urban planning and historic preservation to natural resource planning. They include:

  • College of the Arts and Sciences (Department of Geography)
  • College of Engineering (Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering programs)
  • College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (Construction Systems Management program)
  • Fisher’s Center for Entrepreneurship
  • Knowlton School of Architecture (City and Regional Planning program)
  • Moritz College of Law
  • School of Environment and Natural Resources

Students had the opportunity to learn about urban planning and historic preservation; GIS and spatial analysis; property law and negotiation; environmental impacts and natural resource planning; and project management and contracts — to name a few topics of study.
