Real Estate Lab: Real Estate Challenge
Selected students from Chicago Booth compete in the Zell | Booth-Kellogg Real Estate Challenge. Historically, the Challenge topic has been a redevelopment proposal. Each team utilizes the spring quarter to hone their proposal and their presentation. Resources for these activities include interested faculty members, as well as local practitioners familiar with various aspects (design, construction, leasing, financing, etc.) of the proposed project. The proposals are ultimately evaluated by a panel of external judges – one of whom is typically a City representative.

Chicago Conversations are events around the world with rich dialogue among industry leaders thriving in a particular city. Booth corporate partners and the community are invited to hear about industry trends and network with Booth talent.
