The projects will expose students to a wide array of topics essential to running a real estate organization, such as: cost analysis, market research, fundamental investment analysis, capital markets / finance, and buy vs. build analysis. Sponsoring organizations will include real estate developers and property owners, real estate investment companies and real estate service providers. Sponsoring organizations will range in size from small,
locally-based companies to larger multi-region companies.
Studentís work will primarily involve independent research including both on-site work at client organizations and external research. The amount of on-site involvement in
a client organization will depend on the nature of the project. Projects involving the evaluation of new business opportunities, for example, might require much more external analysis and less internal time than one focused on internal financial analysis, which would include more time spent reviewing and analyzing client data.
Most projects will require conducting interviews with internal and external parties, sometimes with minimal or no introductions. Accordingly, English language skills
and the willingness to contact and interview strangers via telephone or in person are important for the success of the projects.
Students must submit a resume to Echo Bergquist (firstname.lastname@example.org). Prof. Chazen will then schedule interviews with students to determine enrollment. Usually offered every semester.
