…for taking first place at the 10th Annual Cornell International Real Estate Case Competition in New York City on November 13, 2018. Second place went to University of Michigan, third to Villanova University, fourth and fifth place to Indiana University and University of Connecticut, respectively. Closing out the top 6 teams was Georgetown University. Twenty-seven undergraduate teams competed for over $20,000 in prize money. The competition was held at Convene in the Financial District.
Cornell University was represented by: Max Feng ’19, Linda Cao ’19, Amanda Cheng ’19, Karen Ding ’20, Mark Rittiboon ’19 and Becca Wang ’20.
The event, developed by Cornell School of Hotel Administration professor Daniel Quan, attracts a global array of students and 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 an intensive five-day analysis preparation by the students and a full day of presentations. The teams are judged on their investment recommendations, approach to the problems, and presentation skills. Judges in the competition are real estate executives representing top companies in the industry.
