The Jeffrey E. Smith Institute of Real Estate and Capital Markets was created to provide educational opportunities in real estate, finance and capital markets to students of the Robert J. Trulaske, Sr. College of Business. The Institute’s goal is to supplement classroom instruction with firsthand experiences outside of the classroom to prepare students for life after graduation.
