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.
On April 27, 2016, The Ohio State University Center for Real Estate hosted its 2016 Real Estate Conference at the Ohio Union. This invitation-only event brought together leaders from all domains of the real estate industry to engage in thought provoking conversations about the state and the future of the real estate industry.
The conference program consisted of four shorter talks covering various topics from how psychology influences our financial decisions to the impact of autonomous cars on our cities and society. The keynote was delivered by Mr. Graham Wyatt, partner at Robert A.M. Stern Architects.
