Wisconsin Real Estate Viewpoint Blog
A group of first-year Wisconsin Real Estate MBA students are in Cannes, France, this week to attend MIPIM, the premier international real estate conference in the world. The 15 students are led by François Ortalo-Magné, professor and department chair, and Arif Qureshi, lecturer for the Department of Real Estate.This is the fifth year Wisconsin MBA's have attended the conference, and this year's participation again offers an outstanding opportunity for close collaboration between the Wisconsin group and the organizers and executives of MIPIM to help them deliver an improved experience to conference attendees and, at the same time, provide valuable global real estate industry exposure for our students.In 2010, we are partnering with MIPIM and CREOpoint, the online community for CRE leaders worldwide, to put you ringside for all the action at MIPIM and learn what is happening across the world in commercial real estate! We will post summaries of each day’s discussions, plus we offer you the opportunity to tell us your questions for MIPIM. We may ask them during the session! Check out the conference program via CREOpoint here. Feel free to add your questions or comments below.
