Eastdil Secured and Project Destined Launch Commercial Real Estate Bootcamp

Eastdil Secured, L.L.C. (“Eastdil Secured”), the global real estate investment bank, and Project Destined, a leading social impact platform that provides training in financial literacy, entrepreneurship and real estate, have launched their fall commercial real estate bootcamp. The program stems from Eastdil Secured’s existing partnership with Project Destined, and consists of a five-week “bootcamp” training program, where 50 students across the U.S. will learn from more than two dozen Eastdil Secured professionals and mentors about key topics in the commercial real estate industry, including:

  • Eastdil Secured’s History and Its Business
  • Interviewing, Recruiting, and Professional Use of Social Media
  • Year One as an Analyst at Eastdil Secured
  • How to Pitch Yourself and a Deal
  • Professional Networking

This bootcamp will provide an unprecedented opportunity for Project Destined students to learn from leaders in commercial real estate investment banking, as well as earn both an ARGUS certification from Altus Group and a Financial Modeling Certification through Project Destined’s partnership with NYU Schack Institute of Real Estate and Columbia Graduate School of Real Estate. In addition to weekly bootcamp sessions, accepted fellows will receive scholarships to participate in Project Destined’s paid virtual internship and bootcamp activities, including visits to Eastdil Secured offices across the U.S.
