University Partners

The purpose of the University Partners program is to strengthen ongoing relationships between ICSC and elite academic programs in real estate and retailing. ICSC’s mission is to engage the entire graduate real estate student body, as well as real estate faculty and staff members, through customized educational and professional opportunities designed exclusively for your graduate students.


"The ASU MRED program has the pleasure of working with ICSC for the past six years. We are fortunate to have an excellent working relationship with all of the major industry groups but ICSC has continuously provided meaningful and critical active support that is unparalleled. ICSC has done much more than provide membership at student prices. As an ICSC University Partner, in addition to the value of an ICSC membership, and among other important support activities; they have provided our students’ access to programs such as Center Build, arranged mentoring from the ICSC membership, provided necessary data for research and analysis, access to industry professionals and proactively sought better ways to support the education process. The educational experience provided by the Arizona State University MRED program is better as a result of the relationship we have with ICSC and work we do with the ICSC staff."
