Ways to Get Involved
Days on the Job
Days on the Job (DOJ) events bring students to the offices of a local real estate company to visit with employees and learn more about the employer and the industry in general. These student-organized events offer a more intimate opportunity to meet real estate executives and demonstrate an interest in a particular employer.
Site visits are organized during the calendar year to expose students to the construction process. In past years, students have toured commercial developments such as the Staples Center and residential developments such as the Hollywood & Vine project with the companies responsible for developing or financing the sites.
Real Estate Challenges & Case Competitions
Each year, UCLA Anderson students are invited to compete in many local and national real estate case competitions, such as the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NAIOP), the University of Texas at Austin McCombs School of Business Real Estate Challenge, the UNC Real Estate Development Challenge, and the MIT Real Estate CASE Competition, among others. The Ziman Center sponsors many of these annual events by paying for the team's entry fee and travel expenses.
Build a Career
Careers & Internships
Working in collaboration with UCLA Anderson's Parker Career Management Center and the UCLA Anderson Student Real Estate Association (AREA), the Center provides assistance to students seeking full-time positions and internships in the real estate industry.
