Peter Bren Donation to Establish Capstone Course

As part of Peter Bren’s $1.25 million donation to establish the Peter Bren Initiative for Real Estate Entrepreneurial Studies, Anderson is proud to roll out a new course for the 2012-2013 academic year, Advanced Cases in Entrepreneurial Real Estate. Intended as the capstone course in the school’s Real Estate certificate and taught by Professor Eric Sussman, the course will be built around complex, live cases written in cooperation with several of the nation’s preeminent real estate developers and investors.

The inaugural quarter will feature guest lectures by Rick Caruso of Caruso Affiliated, Sam Zell of Equity Group Investments, and the executive team at Shea Homes. Future iterations of the class will also feature cases and lectures by Barry Sternlicht of Starwood Hotels & Resorts and John Bucksbaum, former Chairman of General Growth Partners.
