Upcoming events

Runstad Center students and alumni: please mark your calendars for the following events!

April 15, 12:30pm, Gould 110: Brown bag with Maria Barrientos

Maria is one of the most prominent women working in development in the Seattle region.  She has a 15 year track record of projects in both cultural/arts facilities and multi-family housing.  Bisnow has called her one of the most influential urban infill developers in the city – her website is linked here. Come hear how she got her start in the business, how she has overcome the challenges common to all urban infill developers and where she sees opportunities for young developers today.  

April 29, 10:30am – 12:20pm: Commercial Real Estate Symposium

Cosponsored with UW’s Foster School of Business.  RSVP here.

April 29, 12:30pm, Gould 110: Brown bag with Starbucks

Starbucks has been recruiting for real estate positions and hopes to meet interested students at the lunch.  They will be conducting interviews shortly thereafter.  Jim Terry, Vice President for Global Real Estate and Facilities and Global Store Development will discuss the Starbucks real estate operation and we expect that our own alumna Julia Desmond will share her experiences working for Seattle’s Best Coffee and Starbucks.  Human Resources personnel will also be on hand to present their “rotational” management training position that is designed to groom real estate professionals for rapid expansion of career opportunities within the Starbucks real estate organization.  Pizza provided!

April 30, 4:30 – 5:50pm: Annual MSRE Feedback Session (for current students)

This is a chance for you to share with your faculty, staff and fellow students your thoughts on the curriculum and the program.  All feedback is welcome.  We will also be talking about the changing curriculum and the future of the Runstad Center and the MSRE.  Pizza and refreshments will be served!
