UNIVERSITY OF SAN DIEGO BECOMES THE EXCEPTION IN ACADEMIA WITH MCQUAIG ASSESSMENTS Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate, University of San Diego

The Challenge

Practical Career Direction to Drive Employment

300+ Students assessed

90%

Grad student participation rate

97%

Response rate agreeing with accuracy of assessments

The Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate (BMC) at the University of San Diego (USD) offers guidance to students to help them launch and hone their careers. In 2014, BurnhamMoores implemented a Career Services program. The program was developed to: • Point students towards career options that would lead to gainful employment • Offer resources to support students on their chosen career paths In order to achieve these goals, the University of San Diego brought in Stath Karras, executive director of the BMC, and Jacqueline Greulich, student and career services manager. Previously, Karras was CEO of Burnham Real Estate, a 250-person commercial real estate agency. Together, they set out to find a solution that could support USD’s undergraduate and graduate real-estate students.

The Solution

The McQuaig System’s Job Benchmarks and Behavioral Assessments Karras says that for more than 17 years, Burnham Real Estate had found McQuaig reports to be “spot on” in describing an individual’s behavior and predicting on-thejob performance. In order to meet the University of San Diego’s challenges, the BMC turned to a solution that leveraged the power of McQuaig tools. Karras and Greulich drew on behavioral profiles best-in-class performers within the world of real estate, established during Karras’ time at Burnham Real Estate. They solidified benchmarks for roles such as brokers, property managers, financial analysts and researchers -- a diverse collection of career paths that all fell within the real estate industry. Next, real estate students would take the McQuaig Word Survey. After completing the survey and with guidance by Greulich and Karras, students would compare their profile to benchmarks for a number of roles to determine where in the spectrum of real-estate opportunities they best fit.


“If there’s not a reasonably good match, you’re probably going to last at most three years in a job,” said Greulich. “In year one, you will be saying ‘I don’t like it.’ In year two, you will be thinking ‘how can I get out of here?’ And in year three, even if you don’t have a job, you may be leaving.” The project undertaken by Greulich and Karras offers significant career guidance for real estate graduates and undergraduates, including: • Career profiling to map out a student’s recommended real estate career path • A detailed individual behavioral assessment • One-on-one personalized consultation to uncover natural personal strengths and accelerate the career journey • A mentorship program that matches students with seasoned professionals, based on the behavioral assessment

“” The Results

“”

If there’s not a reasonably good match, you’re probably going to last at most three years in a job.

Jacqueline Greulich Student & Career Services Manager Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate University of San Diego

Increased Engagement and Improved Employment Opportunities

This assessment can be as important as grades, where you went to high school, what your GMAT or SAT score is. Maybe even more important.

Stath Karras Executive Director Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate University of San Diego

Determining which behavioral traits lead to success in a position is one-half of the puzzle. The other half involves being able to match individuals to that benchmark. At the University of San Diego, Greulich and Karras created a way to do both, which is what makes the University of San Diego’s solution so powerful. In partnership with McQuaig, the Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate developed a program that allowed students to obtain practical career direction AND to increase the probability of employment in roles that stimulate long-term retention. Students from other programs at USD are already calling to participate in the program, simply based on positive word-of-mouth feedback throughout the university.

The response within the university has been outstanding. Since implementation, Greulich and Karras’ program has produced: • • • •

Personalized job matching and guidance for over 300 students A 90% participation rate from graduate students A 30% participation rate from undergraduates, which continues to increase A 97% response rate from students indicating that they strongly believe the results of the assessment provide a very good representation of them

“This assessment tool can be as important as grades, where you went to high school, what your GMAT or SAT score is,” says Karras. “Maybe even more important.”


Student success stories are already rolling in, but one student’s story stood out in particular. A graduate before McQuaig’s involvement with the University of San Diego was unable to find a job for an entire year. Eventually, the alumnus came back to the BMC center for guidance, and participated in the newly established program. After being debriefed on his behavioral assessment, he discovered that he was pursuing a career that did not match well with his profile. Equipped with new insight, he left the center to pursue a career direction consistent with his behavioral traits. Thirty days later, he had a job.

“”

We implemented this program because we know it’s the right thing for the students.

Stath Karras Executive Director Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate University of San Diego

Karras refers to the Burnham-Moores Center at the University of San Diego as “the exception in academia,” and emphasizes his mission for student success.

“We implemented this program because we know it’s the right thing for the students” says Karras. “My desire would be to assess every real-estate student at USD before they leave the university to give each student the best opportunity to succeed within the industry.”

University of San Diego School of Business Master of Science in Real Estate Team Takes Second Place in ARGUS University Challenge SAN DIEGO, April 12, 2018—The Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate (BMC), within the University of San Diego (USD) School of Business, announced this week that a team of Master of Science in Real Estate (MSRE) students from the University of San Diego School of Business was awarded second place in the 2018 ARGUS University Challenge. Cornell University took first place. The 2018 USD team included: Christian Holbrook ’18 MSRE, Seth Kamphoefner ’18 MSRE, Rachel Kreamer ’18 MSRE, Derek Martin ’18 MSRE and David Neinchel ’19 MSRE, and was led by faculty advisor Charles Tu, the Daniel F. Mulvihill Professor of Commercial Real Estate. "The ARGUS University Challenge provides students an opportunity to integrate the knowledge and skills they have acquired in various courses in the MSRE program,” says Tu. “Our program’s continuing success in this competition is the result of students’ strong analytical skills, as well as strategic thinking and problem-solving abilities." The USD team defeated more than 40 schools from around the world, including the University of Chicago, New York University, Johns Hopkins, UCLA and USC. USD’s MSRE teams have a long-standing history of success in the ARGUS University Challenge, taking first place on six occasions and second place on three occasions. This highly competitive real estate challenge required each student team to run a comprehensive investment analysis on a commercial real estate case. The USD team approached the case study holistically. They completed in-depth market research, utilized all features of ARGUS Enterprise, including modeling sensitivity scenarios stressing inflation rates and rental income, and also explored alternative solutions that were not provided in the case. “Participating in the ARGUS University Challenge allowed us to take advantage of everything we learned in the MSRE program,” says Kreamer. “It strengthened and solidified our knowledge and skills and this experience is one we will take with us after the program and into our careers. Being chosen to compete against some of the best business schools in the world and represent the USD School of Business and the Burnham-Moores Center was an incredible honor.”


A panel of judges reviewed the case submissions, determined the 2018 winners (case submissions of each team are hyperlinked below) and awarded $22,000 in cash prizes to the winning teams: First place: Cornell University Second place: University of San Diego Third place: University of Chicago Honorable mention: Auburn University.

Undergraduate Real Estate Team Takes First Place in NAIOP University Challenge SAN DIEGO, April 27, 2017— The Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate (BMC), within the University of San Diego (USD) School of Business, announced that a team of University of San Diego School of Business undergraduate real estate students took first place in the Seventh Annual NAIOP University Challenge. USD real estate seniors Danielle Priore, Alexander Splinter, Gwendolyn Walter, Demarco Duran, Forrest Greenwalt and Anh Nguyen competed against teams from the University of California San Diego and San Diego State University. The competition involved the highest and best use analysis of the downtown county courthouse site, comprised of 3.45 acres along three blocks of land, which was first built in the 1870s. The University Challenge comprised three parts: a written report; a private question and answer session with a panel of nine senior level commercial real estate executives who served as judges; and a final presentation before 300 industry professionals at a NAIOP reception. The USD team proposed a project titled “The Quartz” to fit in with the other gem-like building projects downtown. The project incorporated a creative residential component tailored specifically to millennials, featuring 250 micro units at 250-350 square foot each. Along with the residential component, commercial and retail space also encompassed three blocks of prime downtown San Diego. The project also boasted numerous community benefits including: a San Diego Innovation Center Museum; a 5,000 square foot dog park; an open-air concert venue; and much more. The USD undergraduate team addressed real estate-related topics, including financing, transit-oriented issues, sustainable development, traffic patterns, community impact, feasibility and investment returns. “Being on the NAIOP University Challenge team was the most incredible learning experience,” says Priore ’17. “It provided me with the opportunity to connect what I’ve learned about market research and finance in class with creating a real development project from start to finish and I gained hands-on leadership experience as team leader. I am grateful and excited that we won and got to bring the trophy home to USD.” “We are proud to have our outstanding real estate students recognized for their hard work dedication and commitment involved in this competition, says Stath Karras, executive director for the Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate. The students were guided by faculty advisor, Charles Tu, the Daniel F. Mulvihill Professor of Commercial Real Estate, along with Jake Schwartz ’00. This marks USD’s first victory for the undergraduate NAIOP competition. View photos of the event.
