Meet our students

Reflecting the inherently interdisciplinary nature of real estate, our students come from a wide variety of academic backgrounds including design, finance, business, construction management, planning, policy and related fields. They bring passion for a variety of interests, ranging from affordable housing, commercial development, sustainability, to portfolio analysis international finance and property management.

Local and global perspectives

Our students hail from across the country, around the globe and from just around the corner, bringing a rich variety of perspectives to classroom discussions. Many have spent a number of years working in the real estate industry and can contribute a sophisticated understanding of the applied practice of real estate to team projects and other academic endeavors. They are enthusiastic participants in a number of extracurricular activities and eager to network with industry and community leaders through the various programs of the Runstad Center.
