The Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series (DDLS) brings prominent industry professionals to speak at SHA most Fridays during the fall semester. For 2014, students worked in pairs each week to research, meet, and profile featured speakers, and then guest-blog here about the experience.
This week’s student authors are Armaan Kapoor ’15 and Jake Michaels ’15.
Meeting with Mr. Harry Macklowe last week was an absolute pleasure. Mr. Macklowe is an extremely intelligent, shrewd businessman, and we were fortunate enough to have hosted him. He is very passionate about his projects and career within the real estate industry, and told us a great deal about his career progression. Furthermore, Mr. Macklowe is dedicated to helping students, and offered us a great deal of advice for the future. He spent a significant amount of time with each student with whom he interacted, to understand the experiences, interests, and plans for the future of each, and so he could offer valuable, unique feedback; this is something none of us had experienced before, and it was truly appreciated.
