The Corky McMillin Center for Real Estate

The Corky McMillin Center for Real Estate is part of the College of Business at San Diego State University. San Diego State University has a history, tradition and commitment to teaching real estate. The program began in 1958 and continues to produce real estate graduates who are ready Day 1. In order to contribute to the education of the next generation of real estate leaders, the McMillin family along with HG Fenton, Cassidy Turley and Cornerstone Communities generously decided to give back and support real estate education by forming The Corky McMillin Center for Real Estate.

Our Mission

  • ENHANCE the academic experience of students interested in real estate.
  • DEVELOP critical and innovative research for the real estate community.
  • PRODUCE Day 1 ready graduates and real estate leaders.

The vision of the founders is to make SDSU a center of real estate excellence.
