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 Lewis White Real Center at The Bloch School at UMKC is house in the department of Entrepreneurship. It is a natural fit to be also aligned with the new ICSC University Partnership Program because what is an entrepreneur without partners? Especially in real estate. We have a first of a kind Master’s degree in Entrepreneurial Real Estate I am very excited to see the synergy between the two in the next few years. Congratulations to ICSC for their vision in creating this program!"
