Internship opportunities

An interuniversity challenge that will test your knowledge

You will have to answer the following question: “How can we identify the cities and places of tomorrow?”

You will have to demonstrate how these innovative areas are driving the return on our future investments, while driving sustainable development.

Your findings must be related to commercial real estate, specifically to the logistics/industrial and residential asset classes in North America.

Expected outcome

1. Report including the following solution:

  • Macroeconomic analysis
  • Supervised or unsupervised model
  • Predictive model (financial dimension)

2. Presentation to a jury (10 minutes)

Who can register?

The Challenge is open to students of HEC Montréal and Université Laval Faculty of Business Administration, who are either:

  • Final-year students of the B.B.A. program

or

  • Enrolled in a master’s degree in a related field (finance, economics, financial planning, business analytics, project management, etc.)

Registration is on an individual basis. Each university will then group its students into teams of 2 to 3 people.
