The vision of the Westman Centre for Real Estate Studies is to be a catalyst for the development of real estate industry professionals and a leading centre of excellence for real estate studies. The Westman Centre is focused on developing the next generation of leaders for Calgary’s entrepreneurial real estate industry through its teaching, research and community engagement activities.

For Students

A robust curriculum taught by outstanding instructors and diverse extra-curricular activities are key to offering our students learning opportunities that are relevant and rigorous.

Thought Leadership

Working collaboratively and across disciplines to advance research on relevant and timely topics for the real estate industry, including case studies to enhance our curriculum.

Community Engagement

Building strong relationships between students, faculty and industry leaders is critical to the success of the Westman Centre and the real estate studies program.

The Westman Centre, and the real estate studies concentration, provided me with the educational platform and networking opportunities I needed to launch an exciting career in commercial real estate. Learning from industry leaders was an invaluable experience that has helped to prepare me for life after graduation.

Latest initiative by the Westman Centre

The pandemic provided a pivotal opportunity to examine how the intersection of real estate and technology (PropTech) can change the way the world’s largest asset class is developed, traded, used and operated. On June 9, the Westman Centre collaborated with industry leaders to identify how PropTech can advance business objectives in the area of property management, producing tangible benefits for property managers while elevating the tenant experience.
