HADM 4235: Cornell Real Estate Case Competition Course

Fall, spring. 2 credits. Letter grades only.


Faculty teaching this course:

Each year, Cornell organizes in November the Cornell International Real Estate Case Competition (CIRECC). The top 20 undergraduate academic real estate programs in the world enter teams of six real estate students to compete in this exciting and enriching academic event. Students in this class learn how to effectively pitch a commercial real estate transaction to a panel of senior real estate professionals. A team of six is then sent to the actual competition to represent Cornell. During the competition, teams will be judged not only on their investment recommendations, their approach to the problem, and their presentation skills, but also on their ability to answer and response to direct and probing questions posed by the judges. Students should be advised that the workload will be extensive and will involve working on numerous practice cases as a team and developing individual presentation skills.
