The Ohio State Center for Real Estate at Fisher College of Business is dedicated to fostering excellence in real estate education, applied and academic research, and outreach through community and university partnerships. The Center’s main goal is to serve as a link between our students, faculty, alumni, and the various parts of the real estate industry, creating a vibrant community touching all aspects of real estate.
The Center for Real Estate partnered with NAIOP Central Ohio chapter to organize its first annual undergraduate student case competition. The case competition aims to give students a taste of what a career in real estate development might look like by asking teams to create a development proposal for a specific land parcel. This year's competition asked students to come up with a proposal for developing the intersection of 15th and High Street. Five teams comprised of 20 students competed for cash prizes worth of $4000, as well as a chance to present their projects in front of Campus Partners. For more information, please visit the case competition site.
The 2016 Fall Dinner was held on October 19, 2016 at the High Line Car House in German Village. The first annual dinner was designed to bring together leaders of the real estate industry in a social setting to allow for informal discussions of broader topics that go beyond the real estate industry. Given the election season, our speaker this year, Dr. Herb Asher, discussed the presidential race and its potential impact on American democracy. For event photos, please view our slideshow.

It was with a sad heart that we learned of the unexpected passing of our dear friend and colleague, Paul Weinstock. Paul was a fixture at Fisher for the past 19 years, teaching many courses in the fields of finance and real estate. For those interested in honoring Paul, you can contribute to a scholarship fund established in his memory that will provide support to undergraduate students with passion for real estate.
