Joseph E. Corcoran Center for Real Estate and Urban Action

The mission of the Joseph E. Corcoran Center for Real Estate and Urban Action at the Carroll School of Management is to develop skilled professionals in the field of real estate. As a complement to Boston College’s Jesuit Core, the Center encourages students to think across disciplines and to combine the academic exploration of real estate with real-world problem solving. The Corcoran Center seeks to prepare dedicated “men and women for others” with the skills, knowledge, and experience within the field of real estate to become community-conscious professionals.

Internship Programs: Engage students in a variety of practical, meaningful learning experiences, including workshop trainings, field projects, and summer internship programs.

Speaking Program: Invite students to join the network of professionals and experts in the fields of real estate and urban revitalization through a speaker series, small group lunches, and Center coordinated activities.

Neighborhood Engagement Program: Create opportunities for multiple disciplines from across the University to engage in place-focused neighborhood strengthening.
