Real estate is fundamental to global prosperity and human flourishing.

Building upon Notre Dame's world-class faculty, global alumni network, and distinctive Catholic mission, the Fitzgerald Institute for Real Estate is dedicated to educating and inspiring the next generation of real estate professionals.

We are focused on studying all aspects of real estate, including core areas like investment and development, as well as fundamental questions about how we invest, build, and develop contributes to the common good.

We are committed to an interdisciplinary curriculum that combines theory and practice with ethics; to rigorous research that engages with industry and public policy; and to the idea that real estate involves a call to create places of lasting value.
