History

The mission of the Fisher Center for Real Estate & Urban Economics (FCREUE) is to educate students and real estate professionals and to support and conduct research on real estate, urban economics, the California economy, land use, and public policy.

FCREUE is many things to many people.

  • Students and alumni from the Haas School of Business, the College of Environmental Design, the Goldman School of Public Policy, and other schools and programs across the UC Berkeley campus are able to take advantage of the resources available through the center. FCREUE provides academic resources, serves as a liaison to industry leaders, and is a resource throughout their professional careers.
  • Real Estate Faculty and faculty associates, from many disciplines across campus are given financial support and a forum to present their research to industry professionals. The Center's staff researchers share applied economic research on real estate, urban economics, and California policy issues with colleagues at the university, the real estate industry, and the general public.
  • Critical to the success of our efforts is our partnership with our Policy Advisory Board (PAB). For over thirty years real estate and finance leaders have provided the primary financial support for all the Center's activities. The Fisher Center provides the PAB with timely economic, financial and real estate market updates. The PAB also actively participates in FCREUE research and classroom and executive education.
  • For real estate practitioners we produce timely, practical, and relevant executive education conferences. FCREUE recognizes each relationship adds value to the others, and is critically important to fulfilling the Center's mission.
