Overview

The Weitzman School Real Estate Club provides a platform for mentoring, speakers, panels, site visits, resume promotion and career strategizing. Through our various resources we seek to demonstrate how the interdisciplinary curriculum of Weitzman School uniquely corresponds to the nature of real estate development and community-building today.

The Weitzman School Real Estate Club also serves as the school’s student liaison to the Samuel Zell and Robert Lurie Real Estate Center at The Wharton School. In this capacity, the Club works closely with the Wharton MBA and Undergraduate Real Estate Clubs and the Law School Real Estate Club.

We invite you to explore the site to learn more about the benefits of club membership and peruse the materials provided. You will find profiles of current members, examples of alumni achievements and successes, information on current and past events and panels, and directions on how to join the club, among other pertinent information.
