The 2016 Capital Challenge pits teams from Georgetown University’s Master of Professional Studies in Real Estate Program, The Colvin Institute of Real Estate Development at The University of Maryland, The Kogod School of Business at American University, Johns Hopkins Carey Business School and George Mason University’s M.S. Program in Real Estate Development  in a case study competition focusing on a real estate development/redevelopment project in the Washington, DC, Suburban Maryland metropolitan area. Teams are assigned the same real estate case study and provided essential information and/or assumptions about the property. Students will then formulate a proposed investment strategy and develop a comprehensive analysis and recommendations to maximize the potential of the property from both a quantitative (financial) and qualitative (feasibility) standpoint. 

The Capital Challenge uniquely examines a “real life” case study and assigns each school a team of consultant sponsor firms from supporting disciplines to help the team develop their solution.  At the Challenge finale event, the winning school is awarded a Grand Prize Scholarship of $10,000!

We are excited to explore a unique Montgomery County property for our 2016 case study.  Previous Challenges have examined The Midland Companies prime Bethesda property, Federal Realty's Pike 7 Plaza, W.C. Smith’s Riverfront Portfolio, First Potomac Realty Trust’s Greyhound site, Akridge’s Buzzards Point and a JBG’s sponsored site in NOMA.  The case sponsorship and consultant sponsorship proceeds fund the scholarship prize and team expenses incurred in case preparations. 

The Capital Challenge has proven to be of great value to the case sponsor, consultant sponsors and an innovative way to connect our NAIOP members with the bright young minds of future real estate professionals so please, get involved and help make this another successful Challenge! 
 
Please contact Tim Zulick, Capital Challenge Chair or Sally Modjeska if you have an interesting project or site for future case study consideration.
 
We look forward to hearing from you!
