DANIEL M. DILELLA CENTER FOR REAL ESTATE
BUILDING LEADERS THROUGH EXPERIENCE
The Daniel M. DiLella Center for Real Estate was established to provide outstanding academic and professional development opportunities to Villanova students in the field of real estate. The DiLella Center supports faculty research and teaching, ensuring relevance in the curriculum through the incorporation of site visits, experiential learning projects, industry-standard tools and the perspectives of industry experts.
Through the DiLella Center, undergraduates can pursue a major, co-major or minor in real estate—with real estate focused courses including investments, law, development, modeling, accounting, capital markets and economics—while graduate students can specialize in real estate through the Villanova MBA program. The DiLella Center also supports VSB’s student-run Real Estate Society.
The DiLella Center connects and mobilizes the Villanova real estate community—through educational programs, thought leadership initiatives and networking events—to expand the horizons of a new generation of real estate leaders and to generate vibrant conversations on issues facing the real estate industry.
Welcome to the Daniel M. DiLella Center for Real Estate at the Villanova School of Business. We are dedicated to producing tomorrow’s leaders in the commercial real estate industry at both the undergraduate and graduate level and fostering a community that shares knowledge and experiences.
