The McCombs Real Estate Investment Fund

The McCombs Real Estate Investment Fund is a student-managed investment fund that establishes McCombs as the nation’s pre-eminent real estate educational institution. Select MBA students serve as equity managers with undergraduates as analysts handling the day-to-day operations of the fund. Faculty members and an Advisory Board act as mentors and guide students in their investment underwriting and analysis; an outside Investment Committee continually oversees the fund performance. 

The students participate in all aspects of the investment process including underwriting and closing, asset management and reporting, through the disposition of funds. This multi-million dollar public-private real estate investment fund affords McCombs the distinction of being the only business school in the country where students have the opportunity to manage a fund with both public and private real estate investments as part of their course work.
