The Real Estate Case Competition immerses Lafayette students into the world of real estate development. Participants receive a crash course in real estate, work with an industry mentor as they conduct a project feasibility analysis on an actual Lafayette College development project, and present their recommendations to a panel of industry experts.
Dyer Center is partnering with the Urban Land Institute for this year’s real estate case competition. Student participants will have access to ULI’s Foundation of Real Estate educational modules to prepare for the case competition and will be eligible to complete a 30-hour commercial real estate certificate program through ULI.

What will I learn?
Students will learn the basics of asset valuation and returns. This foundational financial skill will be invaluable for future personal and professional situations.
Students will also get valuable practice presenting to industry leaders and convincing them that their team’s idea is the best. This is something you will have to do often as a professional regardless of the career track.
Finally, you will have fun! The case will require work, but I am confident it will be one of the most valuable investments you make while on campus.
What will I win?
1st place – $1500
2nd place – $1000
3rd place – $500
How big can my team be?
Minimum of 2, maximum of 4
Do I need to be a certain major?|
No! The case was designed to be accessible to any student who attends the boot camp on Saturday, February 20th, and applies him/herself. We encourage students from all backgrounds to apply as each discipline will view the case from a slightly different perspective.
