ASU MRED Students at Retail Green/CenterBuild

ICSC has played host to the 2013-14 MRED (Master’s in Real Estate Development) students from Arizona State University at the annual Retail Green/CenterBuild Conference in Phoenix.  Accompanied by MRED Director Mark Stapp and Assistant Director Wimberly Doran, the students have participated in all aspects of the meeting.  In addition to joining program sessions and networking events, the students led roundtable discussions during the three day event.  During the conference, students were paired with about 40 industry mentors for one-on-one conversations about professional development topics, career advice, and job search strategies. The mentors are all recipients of one or more of ICSC’s professional designations in marketing, management, leasing and/or development.

Special thanks are offered to Stapp, Doran, and Rhonda Payne, ICSC Vice President for Education and Certifications, who connected the student membership program with Retail Green/CenterBuild designees.
