Commercial Real Estate Workshop

The Commercial Real Estate Workshop is a three-credit program focused on preparing students to research, model and present commercial real estate deals to investment committees. Students will learn to combine their cross-functional skills and apply them to the real estate industry in a collaborative, case-based environment. Networking opportunities include numerous personal interactions with industry leaders, career fairs, case competitions, and trips to Chicago.

Workshop Application and Admission

Students can apply during the spring of their Sophomore or Junior year.

Enrollment in the course is subject to an application and interview process. A cumulative GPA of 3.5+ is preferred and may be required depending upon the strength of the applicant pool.

Applications open in early March and close on the first Friday in April. Recruiting for the CRW begins in mid to late February with a callout meeting run by incoming CRW executives, as well as a club social event geared towards introducing club members to current CRW members.
