Haskayne students win real estate case competition

Monday, April 15, 2019

Students enrolled in the real estate studies program at the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business won first place in the 2019 University of Guelph Undergraduate Real Estate Case Competition (URECC).

The annual competition is designed to attract a collection of the sharpest, most proactive minds in the real estate industry. Each year, delegates are challenged to rethink an iconic development site in the Toronto real estate market.

This year, the Haskayne team – made up of  Albert Han, post-doctoral research fellow/lecturer Metropolitan Growth and Change (Coach), Youngdoo You, Taya Vale, Davis Lougheed, Hugh Taylor and Jody Sick – was tasked with drafting a development proposal for a four-acre site located in a high growth area in the Studio District of Toronto.

“I’m really proud of the students for their dedication, hard work and enthusiasm. For a relatively new real estate studies program like ours to compete against top North American universities and win is an incredible accomplishment,” said Jessica Abt, director, Westman Centre for Real Estate Studies in a Linkedin post.

Team Haskayne went head-to-head with 16 other schools from across Canada and the United States.
