International Trek to Dubai: A City Built in the Desert
In December 2018, the second-year students of the Baker Program in Real Estate had the pleasure of visiting the United Arab Emirates. The main goal of the annual trek is to get an understanding of how the interests of the stakeholders in real estate differ globally, both in terms of private and public goals. To do this, the students needed to get an understanding of the recent history of Dubai and Abu Dhabi and their rapid rise to prominence as a major worldwide commercial center.
