• Canada's longest running and most prestigious Real Estate Case Competition

    Developers’ Den, the Schulich International Real Estate Case Competition presented by Schulich’s Brookfield Centre in Real Estate & Infrastructure and the Schulich Real Property Alumni Association, is now in its 12th year.

    Teams from top graduate business schools will take part in an intense two-part case competition where the best and brightest real estate students showcase their skills before a panel of judges made up of industry leaders, investors, and executives.

    After being held virtually in 2021, this years’ Den will return to the competition’s roots. The Den will once again take place in two Phases. Phase 1 will be completed off-site in the home location of each team from February 7-13, 2022. Phase 2 will be hosted on March 18, 2022, at the Schulich School of Business in Toronto and is an intense one-day case competition, including a 12-team Semi Final Round and a 3-team Final Round.
