Call for Applications: CoreNet Global Academic Challenge 2020-2021

Your ideas could earn you world travel and global networking with the greatest minds in corporate real estate.

We invite students from around the world to think creatively about a problem facing real estate professionals for renowned companies like Google, Duke Energy, AstraZeneca, Whirlpool, and many others. Challenge your mind power by competing with your peers from around the world. Gain international experience. Connect with experts. Win US $5,000 for your team.

You and your teammates will engage in a contest with competing institutions from all over the globe. Your job is to address challenges like creating an employee experience that attracts millennials while retaining all other generations of employees; or reducing the gap between the speed of business and the typical speed of real estate.

Budding professionals welcome! We’re seeking your ingenuity and creativity. The competition is open to all students (undergraduate/graduate, full-time/part-time) who are currently registered at a recognized university. All past Academic Challenge presentations are viewable in the online Knowledge Center.

All competitions are open to students from all over the world; there is no registration fee.

Student teams from universities and academic institutions around the world are invited to compete in an academic challenge in which students will be asked to play the role of an internal corporate real estate team in order to address a real-world issue facing companies around the globe:

Create strategies that align their company’s global real estate portfolio with a focus on environmental stewardship in a post-pandemic culture. Specifically, your team must develop a proactive strategy that identifies the aspects of the company’s global real estate portfolio which contribute to climate change and prepare strategies to mitigate and replace them.

How can corporate real estate professionals take a leadership role in helping their companies solve what is becoming an existential crisis? Will there be a lasting impact of the COVID-19 lockdown and forthcoming health and safety protocols and practices on the environment and climate change?
