How the Competition Works
The first stage of the competition requires teams to submit a pre-qualification questionnaire, details about each team member and a brief video. The deadline for submission is 28 February 2023.
Submissions will be reviewed by the ULI, Hines and a group of senior industry professionals, with a maximum of eight teams selected for the final stage in May. ULI will alert all teams of their status by mid April.
The competition will take place on Wednesday 10th May 2023 in a hybrid format. Members of the same team are encouraged to gather in their university or convenient venue to work together on the day. Speaker presentations, mentoring, presentations to the jury and judging process will be held online via a virtual competition platform.
On 10 May, the student teams will be briefed on the case study, and each team will work on it for the full day before presenting their solution to a jury of senior industry professionals. The day will close with the winners’ announcement and virtual drinks.
Communication with ULI
Each team must designate one student member as the team leader who will act as a contact person with ULI.
The team leader can address questions and comments to Europe.Competitions@uli.org.
Please note that we are very happy to arrange a 30-minute session to present the competition to students in your university/business school. This is an opportunity for students to learn more about the competition and ask us any questions. Please contact us to schedule a presentation session.
