November 13, 2017 All day

The Center for Real Estate and Finance hosts the 9th Annual Cornell International Real Estate Case Competition in New York City this November 13 – 14, 2017. The event, developed by Cornell professor Daniel Quan, attracts a global array of students, tasks the teams with analyzing an actual commercial real estate transaction, rendering a recommendation, and providing a presentation of their analysis and proposal. The competition itself is the culmination of the intensive five-day undertaking by the students comprised of a full day of presentations. The teams are judged on their investment recommendations, approach to the problems, and presentation skills. Twenty undergraduate teams compete for over $20,000 in prize money. Judges in the competition are real estate executives representing top companies in the industry. The competition is open to undergraduate student teams and is by invitation only.
