Intern, Capital Markets

POSITION DESCRIPTION: The Urban Land Institute, located in Georgetown, has a paid internship opportunity for an outstanding graduate and undergraduate student in finance, statistics, economics, or real estate.

The Urban Land Institute focuses on smart growth, land use policy and practice, infrastructure and transportation issues, finance and capital markets, urban initiatives and community outreach in support of its 30,000 members.  For additional information on ULI, please visit

Overview of Internship:
The Emerging Trends series—Europe, Americas, Asia Pacific—is one of the longest-running and most visible of all ULI products. It is a trends and forecast publication and is jointly undertaken by ULI, through the Capital Markets Center, and PwC. Management of the process and content is the responsibility of ULI.

This year ULI is exploring changes in the process and content and the normally tight timing of the project is now even more so. The process ramps up in late spring/early summer and the intern would work directly with the Senior Vice President to carry out supporting tasks. For example, a key component of the Emerging Trends research are one-on-one recorded interviews carried out by the senior team with property owners and developers, institutional and equity investors/managers, lenders and advisors. The intern would help transcribe, summarize and distill these interviews, with the goal of identifying new trends and ideas. The intern would also assist in researching new or alternative data sources, various approaches to analysis and presentation of data, as well as being involved in strategic planning and structuring the process.

The ideal candidate would enjoy involvement in all aspects of project management, including: team collaboration; transcription and analysis of ‘live’ interviews; strategic planning; macro-economic and real estate financial issues, data base development and manipulation, and the challenge of graphic presentation of complex data.

Support for other Capital Markets projects may be required, as they arise. Tasks would be of similar nature to those described above.

Strong candidates will be currently enrolled graduate students in real estate, urban planning, or a closely related field, or undergraduates in a related field. Candidates should have good project management and research capabilities. Strong written, oral and verbal communication skills are a must.

Interns are expected to work for 8-10 weeks from early June through early-mid August.  Work weeks are 37.5 hours.
