April 2012 - Professor and recent MRED graduate student complete research review

Dr. Elaine Worzala and MRED '12 graduate H. Elizabeth Moeri complete a research review of François Des Rosiers, Marius Thériault and Catherine Lavoie, “Retail Concentration and Shopping Center Rents: A Comparison of Two Cities,” Journal of Real Estate Research (Volume 31, Number 2), 2009, pp. 165-205.  Published by the American Real Estate Society.

This academic study is an example of how MRED students become engaged with the real estate community and the faculty as part of their coursework.  Liz is passionate about retail and completed the review as part of her independent study course during her final semester in the program.  This was a pilot for a new section that the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) is launching for their publication.  The review appears in the VOL. 19, NO. 1, 2012 issue of ICSC's Retail Property Insights. Read Liz Moeri and Dr. Worzala's review here.
