One of the goals of the Baker Program is to educate students who will become global leaders in the real estate industry. This global perspective has attracted the attention of real estate professionals from around the world. These men and women come to Cornell and contribute in a meaningful way to this dynamic and forward thinking graduate real estate experience. More than half of the students in the incoming class of 2017 come from outside the U.S., and each brings a unique background and perspective to the program. For a brief introduction to several of these outstanding first year students, visit the Real Estate Review blog.
