The goal of the Associates in Commercial Real Estate Program is to expand minority representation in the commercial real estate fields of development, property management, and construction management.

Commercial Real Estate (ACRE) Program is an industry-supported initiative that recruits and trains minorities for professional careers in the field of commercial real estate.  The ACRE program was created by Professor Mark Eppli and the Marquette University College of Business in 2005 and is now administered through LISC Milwaukee in partnership with Marquette University, the Milwaukee School of Engineering, and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

The goal of the Associates in Commercial Real Estate (ACRE) Program is to expand minority representation in the commercial real estate fields of development, property management, and construction management. This program offers students the opportunity to expand their knowledge of these industries while creating a valuable network of fellow students, ACRE graduates and industry professionals.

ACRE is a 26-week program that runs from September through May. Typical ACRE students have some college training and several years of business experience. Instructors include industry leaders in related fields. Key contributors include The Mandel Group and The Opus Group Foundation.

The deadline for application to the 2016-2017 ACRE class is Friday, July 15, 2016.
