Wisconsin Real Estate Viewpoint Blog
The fall 2010 semester is underway, and the Graaskamp Center's busy calendar of events has already checked off a meeting with our Board of Advisors
and the alumni biennial conference with the WREAA
. Also busy are our faculty.
Professor and E.J. Plesko Chair of Real Estate and Urban Land Economics Tim Riddiough
is back on campus after an ambitious agenda of research, presentations and discussions among the international real estate community during a year-long sabbatical. He had served previously for five years as academic director for the Center.
Among his accomplishments
this past year:
- Cutting-edge research and global research connections
- Speaking opportunities
- Leadership in the real estate industry
This fall, Tim is advising students in the Applied Real Estate Investment Track (AREIT)
program, a demanding and highly-selective program within the Wisconsin Real Estate MBA. Through the program, students develop fundamental research and portfolio management skills by combining a theoretical foundation with the first-hand experience and challenges of managing real money
in a live REIT portfolio.
