The Steers Center strives to give our students a truly global experience that will allow them to perform at the highest levels on the international real estate stage. Outside of the United States, London is a natural market for students to experience real estate on a global scale. Several firms have head offices in London, which has historically been the epicenter of global real estate with its ease of access to Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
Each year, a select group of first-year MBA students travel to the city for a five-day global real estate trek. The trip gives students an opportunity to connect with Georgetown alumni and have meetings with major industry leaders. The students learn about private sector and infrastructure development, property ownership, and real estate financing from top industry leaders and fellow Hoyas.
“We have tremendous connectivity to alumni and, in turn, major players in the global real estate sector in London,” said Sunil Madan, associate director of the Steers Center. “Forging personal connections with and via alumni at the forefront of the European real estate industry highlights why London provides such an immersive and educational experience for our students.”
