    History

    MBA students in the program in Real Estate and Infrastructure were hungry to compete in an industry specific case competition and to have the opportunity to hone their real estate and business skills by delving into real-world real estate problems.

    To address this desire for a competitive environment in which to test the knowledge and skills that the graduate students were acquiring, Developers’ Den was created as the brainchild of George Carras, founder of RealNet, and Andre Kuzmicki, of the Schulich School of Business.

    Now embarking on its 7th year, Developers’ Den stands amongst the most successful and prestigious real estate case competitions in Canada and the US. Attracting top schools from both countries, Developers’ Den delivers a top-notch learning opportunity that challenges students as the future leaders of the industry

    Developers’ Den is presented by Schulich’s Brookfield Centre in Real Estate & Infrastructure and the Schulich Real Property Alumni Association.
