UW-Madison BBA Team Competes in Toronto Case Competition

Posted By Mandy Kaegy, Wisconsin Real Estate Alumni Association, Inc., Monday, February 25, 2019



A team of four UW-BBA Real Estate students competed at the 2019 Ryerson Toronto Expand Your Empire case competition in early February. The team, consisting of Andrew Greiner, Mathew Reynolds, Sean Casey and Charlie Monnat (left to right), vied against a field of 12 extremely able teams, and brought home a second-place finish and a $5,000 prize. 


The team developed a feasibility proposal for a 4.9-acre city-owned site located in Toronto's Etobicoke submarket. Their proposal for the site included 2 towers of housing (436 Affordable, 624 Market), 150 key Hotel, 75K SF Retail, 1,220 Parking Stalls, 100K SF of community plaza space, Mi-Way Bus Terminal, and underground integration of TTC Islington Subway Station.  The project delivered 15% IRR and 2.7x equity multiple over a 10-year hold period while providing a risk mitigation strategy from acquisition to exit.  


Case competition advisor, Arif Qureshi, said “The team gave two outstanding presentations, receiving rave reviews from the judges, and were excellent ambassadors of the UW-real estate program.”  The team finished second behind Wharton, with the home team, Ryerson University filling in the top three.A special thanks to David Kim for his continued support of the case competition program at UW-Madison.  Congratulations to all!
