This year’s topic is: “Invested: Big Deals in Chicago”

The Panelists will be 
Kirsten Ekdahl Hull ’06, VP Development, EQ Office
Suzanne Martinez ’08, Managing Director, LaSalle Investment Management

We look forward to welcoming this stellar group of real estate alumnae to share their insights and experiences.

Then, on Wednesday, April 10, 2019, our annual Real Estate Conference and Venture Competition will be held at our Global Hub in Evanston for the first time. The Real Estate Conference will feature a capital markets update and an adaptive re-use industry panel, as well as a dynamic keynote discussion featuring Kathleen McCarthy, Senior Managing Director and Global Co-Head of Real Estate at Blackstone, and Amy Diamond, Managing Director of the Northwestern Investment Office. The Real Estate Venture Competition highlights MBA students from top business schools pitching real estate venture ideas to a preliminary investment committee of private equity investors. The four best teams from the preliminary round will present to a high-profile panel of judges selected each year from our Judges Consortium - a pre-identified all-star group of industry professionals. The winning team will receive cash and in-kind prizes valued at $100,000.

Registration for these events will be open soon. Please look for an announcement in your email in the coming weeks.
