Las Vegas, NV
We are pleased to announce that Cornell University took first place in the 4th Annual ICSC & Cornell International Retail Real Estate Case Competition, hosted jointly by the International Council of Shopping Centers and the Center for Real Estate and Finance at the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business. Congratulations goes out to the Cornell team consisting of Harrison Bernstein ’20, Aaron Friedman ’19, Teresa Liang ’20, and Uma Patel ’20, who will receive the $10,000 first place prize. Second place went to University of Queensland and University of Guelph came in third place, both universities collecting $5,000 in prize money.
This case competition, held annually, took place during RECon, the world’s largest retail real estate convention. The invitation-only competition welcomed undergraduate teams of four students from top university real estate programs. The teams presented their analysis of a real estate case study based on an actual transaction to a panel of industry executive judges. This intense competition provides an opportunity for students to practice the skills they have learned in the classroom and showcase their talents to the leaders of the industry.
