Retail Real Estate Case Competition

We are excited to announce the winners of the 7th Annual ICSC & Cornell International Retail Real Estate Case Competition, which was 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 to 1st place winner University of British Columbia – Sauder and 2nd place Cornell University!

The Retail Real Estate Case Competition is held annually and this year took place during ICSC 2022 LAS VEGAS. The competition was in-person on May 22-23, 2022. This invitation-only competition welcomed undergraduate teams comprised of four students each from the top university real estate programs.

Based on an actual business transaction, each of the teams were presented with a real estate case study. Teams had five days for case analysis and preparation prior to a presentation period where teams showcased their final recommendations to a select panel of real estate industry judges.

This intense competition provided 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 was awarded to the top teams on May 23rd.

Competing teams:

  • Cornell University
  • Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis
  • University of British Columbia – Sauder
  • University of Colorado Boulder
