UW-Madison's Business School Launches New International Real Estate Program
In the University of Wisconsin-Madison News, the school announced the launch of its Global Real Estate Master's (GREM) program. The business school program aims to "provide a real estate education that transcends borders" by engaging students from around the world to share in the learning experience.
Business Students From Around the World Converge at the UW-Madison Campus
In partnership with Europe's HEC Paris, Latin America's INCAE Business School, and Asia's Hong Kong University of Science and technology, the GREM program's inaugural class comprises thirteen students who began the program in January in Wisconsin. The semester, which will focus solely on real estate, marks the completion of these students' business school education, as they build on their skills in economics, finance, and business learned at their respective business schools, prior to the start of GREM. As the international students settle into their new home at Grainger Hall, the program kicked off with a four-day course on the real estate process and included preparation for study trips to Chicago and New York.
Professor François Ortalo-Magné, chair of the real estate department and director of GREM believes the program will be an opportunity for these international students to gain top-notch education in real estate, but also for UW-Madison's current students to gain global perspective as they interact in the classroom and campus activities.
