From the Director's Desk
Dear Colleagues, Associates, and Friends:
The 14th Annual Real Estate Gala took place on November 5, 2015 at the Four Seasons Hotel. The event set new records with 470 attendees and over $300,000 raised including the establishment of the new McCaffery Fund for Real Estate Entrepreneurship.
We had our largest entering class of MSRE and MBA/RE students in fall 2015 with total enrollment now over 55 students. We are recruiting for the MBA/RE or MSRE program for fall 2016 - the scholarship deadline is June 30th apply NOW.
The Institute has launched a program providing memberships for students interested in industry organizations. Over 50 student memberships have been established in IREM, ULI, CoreNet, USGBC, CREW, NAIOP, CCIM, and ICSC.
A student team is underway for the 2016 HEEF Midwest Real Estate competition. The team will be proposing a development for City owned sites in Englewood. We wish the team well. The competition presentations will be on April 9th - location TBD.
