NAIOP - Drexel Summer Real Estate Program
NAIOP - Drexel Summer Real Estate Program is designed to introduce rising high school juniors and seniors of color to careers in commercial real estate (CRE) by exposing students to major CRE projects.
The NAIOP-Drexel Summer Program was modified into a unique virtual experience for 2020. The program was delivered over Zoom and utilized other web and smartphone app-based technology for a fully interactive, hands on experience.
Changing the Face of Commercial Real Estate
The path to increased diversity in the commercial real estate industry begins with exposing teens to CRE prior to entering college. Students have the opportunity to explore a variety of careers in real estate such as architecture, development, investment, construction, brokerage and urban planning through the lens of a case study and real estate-focused activities. Students gain a deeper understanding of key concepts in real estate by exploring these topics with Drexel professors, industry mentors and high-level corporate executives.
NAIOP - Drexel Summer Real Estate Program features several team building, college readiness, and enrichment events on Drexel’s campus and throughout the City including site visits to high-profile locations such as FMC and Comcast.
NAIOP - Drexel Summer Real Estate Program is hosted by Drexel University and sponsored by NAIOP, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association, and corporations interested in helping create a more diverse pipeline for CRE talent.
