CoreNet Global Academic Challenge 4.0 for Undergraduates

CoreNet Global is pleased to announce its 2018-19 Academic Challenge sponsored by Cushman & Wakefield and Kl Furniture. The goal of this global competition is to raise awareness of corporate real estate as a viable career opportunity amongst college students of all academic disciplines, to connect local chapters and members of the association with future talent, and encourage more universities to include corporate real estate in their curricula.

Student teams from universities and academic institutions around the world are invited to compete in an academic challenge whereby students will be asked to play the role of consultants in order to address a real-world issue facing companies around the globe: Identify the potential technology disruptors most likely to impact your client’s global corporate real estate footprint and create short-term and long-term strategies that put corporate real estate at the forefront of technological innovation – and enable business success.

Three teams, with a minimum of two (2) and a maximum of four (4) students each, will be selected to compete onsite at the CoreNet Global Asia Pacific Summit, a professional conference for corporate real estate professionals from around the world, to be held in Hong Kong in March 2019. Interested students will be required to submit a registration form and then respond to the challenge, as discussed herein. Based on the quality of their submission, three teams will be invited to participate in the Hong Kong Finals.

The CoreNet Global Academic Challenge.

Forward-thinking leaders of today are focused on the potential disruptors of tomorrow. What is the next big technological shakeup? Are corporate real estate professionals poised to predict, prepare, and participate in the changes that will affect the built environment? What impact will automation and human-machine cooperation, blockchain, artificial and anticipatory intelligence, and the internet of things have on the financial services, insurance, and manufacturing sectors? How will they transform the employee and customer experience – and what does it all mean for a company’s real estate portfolio?
