Retail Real Estate Case Competition

We are excited to announce the 7th 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.

The Retail Real Estate Case Competition is held annually and will take place during ICSC 2022 LAS VEGAS. The competition will be in-person on May 22-23, 2022 in Las Vegas, NV. This invitation-only competition will welcome undergraduate teams comprised of four students each from the top university real estate programs.

Based on an actual business transaction, each of the teams will be presented with a real estate case study. Teams have five days for case analysis and preparation prior to a presentation period where teams will showcase their final recommendations to a select panel of real estate industry 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. A total of $20,000.00 will be awarded to the top teams on May 23rd.
