Welcome to the New Steers Center for Global Real Estate

The Steers Center for Global Real Estate offers students unparalleled access to the real estate industry at a global level through a multi-faceted approach that harnesses the best of Georgetown University and the Washington, D.C., real estate market.
In 2015, Georgetown McDonough aligned its real estate program with industry luminary Robert H. Steers (B ’75), CEO of Cohen & Steers Inc., a pioneering global investment manager and the first investment company to specialize in listed real estate. Steers and partner Martin Cohen co-founded Cohen & Steers Inc. in 1986. Since then the company has become a dominant manager of portfolios specializing in global real estate securities, global listed infrastructure, real assets, large cap value stocks, and preferred securities.
Steers’ accomplishments inspire Georgetown McDonough students pursuing careers in real estate and attract industry leaders to the business school. With the dedication of Steers and his wife, Lauren, the school has elevated its role in the study of national and global real estate to prepare students for careers as leaders in the field.
