A whole, new world by Graaskamp Center Staff
In January, second-year Wisconsin Real Estate MBA students traveled to Hong Kong and Seoul. The tour included meetings with UW alumni and local officials and site visits to significant properties in each market. Students brought back networking contacts, souvenirs, and, most importantly, a new perspective on real estate markets beyond the U.S.

That international perspective is an important component of our real estate MBA program. The trip is part of the second-year curriculum. First-year students will attend MIPIM in Cannes, France in March. It's the Wisconsin viewpoint that the world needs passionate, talented and socially responsible people to develop, finance and improve the urban environment. The Wisconsin Real Estate Program challenges the next generation of leaders to reach their potential.

Students have additional opportunities to travel within the U.S. and abroad through the Wisconsin School of Business and with the UW Real Estate Club.

Check out this video, made by one of our students, of the highlights of the trip:
