Accomplished Real Estate Professional to Lead Master's Program

As real estate and development wonks gathered in Washington for the Urban Land Institute's fall meeting last month, one more expert joined their ranks: Dawn Eisenberg, newly appointed Program Director for the MS in Real Estate (MSRE) program at the Kogod School of Business.

The school is named after Robert Kogod '62, who formerly served as co-chairman and co-CEO of the Charles E. Smith Companies; he is known for spearheading the development of Crystal City in Northern Virginia.

The expo catered to both seasoned professionals and new members, offering insight into the current pulse of the industry. Graduate students from the MSRE program attended the program, which featured a young leader reception and discussions with members of the Obama administration and the former vice chairman of the Federal Reserve.
