Rutgers Center for Real Estate Announces Executive Committee

Diverse collection of leading industry executives will help steer Rutgers students toward professional success in the real-estate industry

The Center for Real Estate at Rutgers Business School announced the members of its executive committee, advisory board and emerging leaders council. Comprised of an array of the Garden State’s most innovative and successful real estate professionals, the bodies will contribute toward the center’s goals of providing a best-in-class educational experience to the next generation of real estate professionals and conducting objective real-estate research for the benefit of the entire state.

“As the Center enters its fourth year of educating Rutgers students, much of the success we’ve already attained is attributable to the hands-on participation of members of our executive committee, advisory board and emerging leaders council,” said Professor Morris A. Davis, Paul V. Profeta Chair of Real Estate and Academic Director of the Rutgers Center for Real Estate. “Creating the ideal real-estate learning environment requires both the academic perspective from our faculty and the industry expertise offered by these executives. The Rutgers Center for Real Estate is excited to work with our incoming board members.  We are confident in our ability to define excellence and be the global leader in Real Estate Education.”

Founded in 2014, the Rutgers Center for Real Estate provides real estate education and scholarships to students at the school’s Newark and New Brunswick campuses. Members of the advisory board and emerging leaders council have long been an instrumental part of the center, advising on its educational curriculum, providing one-on-one mentoring to current students, and participating in the center’s industry research and conferences. The generosity of the advisory board and emerging leaders council has also enabled the center to award nearly $250,000 in scholarships since its inception.

Earlier this summer, the center released a landmark study on the relationship between the number of school-age children in multifamily developments and other key factors, including renters’ household income, product density and the age of the building. Conducted by an academic and industry team led by the center’s faculty and executive committee members, the study’s results provided much-needed quantitative data for the often-contentious debate surrounding the impact of new development on overburdened public school systems.

“Just a few years since its founding, The Rutgers Center for Real Estate has quickly become one of the region’s premier centers for real estate education,” said Carl Goldberg, co-chair of the executive committee. “It’s a true honor to be given the opportunity to help educate the bright young men and women who are the future of our industry. With the center at the forefront of industry education and research, it is increasingly clear that it will play a significant role in shaping New Jersey’s built environment in the years ahead.”
