The Graduate Real Estate Society works in coordination with the Real Estate Finance and Investment Center (REFIC) at The University of Texas at Austin to organize, educate, encourage, and assist students with future careers in real estate.

GRES members have exclusive access to the REFIC mentor program, Argus and Excel modeling training sessions, lunch and learns, coffee chats, seminars and case studies. Industry treks to Austin, Dallas, Houston, and New York offer valuable networking opportunities with firms and the chance to visit development sites and noteworthy projects. Real estate competitions take place throughout the year, and GRES members are eligible to represent McCombs as participants. Each fall, GRES sponsors the National Real Estate Challenge and invites teams from nearly all of the top 20 ranked MBA programs to Austin.
