The Cornell University Center for Real Estate and Finance (CREF) and the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) teamed up to host the Retail Real Estate Case Competition on May 22, 2016 in Las Vegas, NV. The invitation only competition welcomed five undergraduate teams of four students each from the top university real estate programs. The teams were presented with a real estate case which is based on an actual business transaction.

After five days of analysis and preparation, the teams presented their recommendations to a panel of industry judges. The judges declared one team the winner of the $10,000 prize. This intense competition provides an opportunity for students to practice the skills they have learned in the classroom and showcase themselves to the leaders of the industry.
