Explore all facets of the real estate industry—from co-living trends to property development and beyond—during Industry Insiders: Real Estate on Thursday, October 24.
Industry Insiders offers a fresh take on professional development events: students with little or no previous experience are welcome and there are no wrong questions.
Michigan alums who are making strides or leading in their industries will be there to help students explore the field and better understand whether a particular career path is right for them.
This is a non-recruiting, exploratory event.
When is Industry Insiders?
Thursday, October 24 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) Apse. Students will be able to RSVP in the network from Monday, September 4 through Sunday, October 6 at 11:59 p.m.
What companies are participating?
You’ll meet leaders from different facets of the industry, including Wendy Katz, the executive director of Cushman and Wakefield, Tanya Morton, founder of the Belgian co-living property Morton Place, and more.
What is the event like?
The format is casual; alumni introduce themselves, then students break out into small-groups with each alum for conversation. Every time the bell rings, students switch tables to talk to a new alum, making connections and gaining more clarity about their interests.
Who is eligible?
LSA students in their first and second year, including transfer students in their first year at U-M who are planning to graduate in the Fall of 2022 or later, and students who have little to no previous experience within the real estate industry.
Why should you apply?
To get a taste of what a career in real estate is actually like, and to make connections with alums in an industry you’re interested in.
