REAL MILLIONS, REAL MOTIVATION

The student real estate experience at Texas McCombs is not theoretical. We give student fund managers and analysts responsibility for a multi-million-dollar fund with real accountability.

HOW WE DO IT IN TEXAS

Texas McCombs is the only business school in the country where students have the opportunity to manage a real estate investment fund with both public and private real estate investments. Select MBA students serve as equity managers, with undergraduates as analysts handling the fund's day-to-day operations. 

Students participate in all aspects of the investment process, including underwriting and closing, asset management, and reporting, through the disposition of funds. Faculty members and an Advisory Board act as mentors and guide students in their investment underwriting and analysis; an outside Investment Committee continually oversees the fund performance.
