The NYU Schack Institute of Real Estate has gone international with a new program for its graduate students.

Students recently participated in the Three Continents Program, which is focused on international real estate development. Participants went to Singapore, Poland and Colombia and focused on corporate finance; planning and design issues in development as well as comparative international real estate.

Roughly 40 students went to Singapore, 14 went to Colombia and 16 traveled to Poland. The groups, comprised of both students and faculty members, met with real estate-focused companies in their respective destinations.

“Our inaugural Three Continents Program offered students three very different hands-on, international real estate experiences this semester,” Clinical Associate Professor Patrice Derrington said in a statement. “Each year, we plan to offer new destinations for our students to provide a well-rounded global real estate education.” — Claire Moses
