Master of Science in Real Estate Students Blog at MIPIM

Wednesday, March 21, 2018

Our University of San Diego School of Business Master of Science in Real Estate (MSRE) students, along with Stath Karras, executive director of the Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate, were invited back to be bloggers at the annual MIPIM conference in Cannes, France from March 13-16, 2018. MIPIM is a leading international real estate conference for property professionals. This international event brings together the most influential players from all property sectors and offers unrivaled access to the greatest number of development projects and sources of capital worldwide.

In collaboration with MIPIM, School of Business MSRE students Kurt Luedtke '18, Taylor Stack '19, Whitney Jorgensen '18 and Tyler Jenkins ’19 served as official MIPIM bloggers, curating content on a range of topics related to commercial real estate. USD School of Business MSRE students have served as official MIPIM bloggers for the last six years.

Popularly advertised by MIPIM as “a year’s worth of business in four days,” the event offers expositions, networking, conferences and awards. Representatives from more than 90 countries attend each year from property sectors such as office, residential, retail, healthcare, sport, logistics and industrial.

In addition to attending many informative panel presentations, the students were also able to meet with several global leaders in real estate. Two of the meetings included the head of global research for USAA and the head of business development-Europe for Aon. The students were also invited to attend a reception hosted by Deutsche Bank on a private yacht where they met the CEO of Deutsche Bank.​

“MIPIM is a unique opportunity for the students to extend their international perspective on commercial real estate and gain insight on industry trends,” says Karras. “It allows the students to network and demonstrate their interests and expertise in the field to property professionals from around the world.”
