CRE Global Outreach: The Kenyan Student Exchange Program

Summer 2010, Vol. 35, No. 2

Abstract: The Counselors of Real Estate (CRE) recently established a small-scale student exchange program in one of the last emerging global markets: Africa. Funded by The CRE Foundation, the program brought three Kenyan students from the Kenya School of Monetary Studies (KSMS) to New York City in May 2010 to learn about U.S. real estate practices. In this commentary, the author talks about the program’s completion, with a trip by several Counselors to KSMS this past June, and shares thoughts from one of the Kenyan students.
