Real Estate Advisory Council

The LMU Real Estate Advisory Council (REAC) provides guidance, advice and feedback to LMU College of Business Administration on business and employment trends in real estate. The council offers direction on how to improve the real estate curriculum and partners with the Real Estate Society to organize extracurricular activities to educate LMU students about careers in real estate and current trends. REAC recently spearheaded a Real Estate Certificate Program

In addition, REAC is proud to provide annual scholarships to selective students who are interested in the real estate industry and has recently funded certificate program training courses for students to help them be better prepared for jobs in the commercial real estate industry.
