Thirty real estate certificate students graduated on May 10, 2012 along with their approximately 550 classmates at the Leeds School of Business. Each of these students completed their real estate internship and as of this writing, around fifteen of the students have accepted permanent jobs in real estate. Another eleven seniors will graduate with their real estate certificate in December 2012.
One example of a successful industry partnership is with Evans Senior Investments: Leeds students and several Evans Scholars have taken part in a rigorous training program that teaches them how to interact with owners of Seniors Housing communities across the country while giving them a full understanding of the business. Each student receives individual and group training sessions to ensure they are competent and will enter the work place with the following competencies: business development, real estate finance, and business etiquette.
“We are extremely excited to create this partnership between ESI and the University of Colorado. Lisa Chambers at the CU Real Estate Center has been a fantastic resource and critical part of this program ensuring that all of the interns earn college credit for this opportunity,” said Managing Partner Jeremy Stroiman. “Our hope is for these students to learn all aspects of the industry and find full-time positions within the industry upon graduation.”
In Fall 2012, the real estate certificate program will enroll a record 95 juniors and seniors enrolled. If you are interested in setting up a real estate internship for an undergraduate junior or senior, please contact Lisa Chambers at 303.492.4194.
