Cushman & Wakefield has been an ongoing supporter of UConn’s Center for Real Estate, most recently sponsoring the University’s student ARGUS training and certification program, an important program for the school and a notable differentiator for graduating students entering the commercial real estate job market. Cushman & Wakefield has selected UConn as a target recruitment school for all early-in-career positions, including its rotational & development Professional Real Estate Program (PREP) and national internship opportunities.
In addition to the firm’s honor as “Partner of the Year,” Mallika Winsor, Senior Associate, Strategic Advisory Group was named The Center for Real Estate’s “Early Career Alumni of the Year.” Mallika graduated from UCONN in 2013, and has been with Cushman & Wakefield for four years.
