A Day at Schack - Hosted by the Schack Advising Office

Pursuing a graduate program is a major decision, and at Schack, we are here to support you. To introduce you to the Schack community, give you a preview of our curricular and co-curricular opportunities, and answer questions you may have about the Institute, the Schack Advising Office hosts “A Day at Schack” for prospective and accepted students. We encourage you to join us for all or part of the day’s agenda if you are available. During this day, you learn more about life as a student of one of the world’s leading and most dynamic real estate programs.

A Day at Schack attendees have the opportunity to sit in on selected classes and meet with the Schack Institute dean, and other members of the Schack community, including current student leaders, faculty, and administration. During this day, panels comprised of faculty and recent graduates discuss their academic and personal experiences at Schack and how they have leveraged Schack’s exceptional connections across the real estate industry.

As part of their academic experience, Schack students gain a wealth of professional exposure through internship opportunities at some of the top real estate and financial firms in the world. By partnering with the NYU Wasserman Center for Career Development at NYUSPS, they learn to identify their professional values and define their career goals, while securing internships that position them for success in the global marketplace. Schack encourages all of its students to work with a Wasserman Center career coach and to use internship opportunities to gain work experience and academic credit.
