The Robert and Margaret Folsom Institute For Real Estate

Folsom Institute

The backbone of real estate activity at SMU since 1984, the Folsom Institute bridges the academic and professional worlds. Through its dynamic programming, students gain hands-on experience and make invaluable connections in the Dallas real estate market. The takeaway? A solid foundation for success in this constantly evolving industry.

The Folsom Institute stands out as the single most helpful resource during my time on campus.
