ARGUS Software's 2013 University Challenge gives students the unique opportunity to
participate in a powerful and compelling competition that enhances knowledge of ARGUS Solutions.
Universities and students both benefit from the valuable experience gained from working with seasoned
real estate professionals.
The Challenge: Urban Regeneration | The Springfield Monorail Redevelopment
One team from each participating university must complete a case study entitled
Urban Regeneration: The Springfield Monorail Redevelopment.
This fun and engaging case study was created by Sara J Wilkinson.
Each team must prepare an ARGUS model based on this case study and
submit a paper explaining the results of the analysis by Friday, March 22, 2013. Winners of the Challenge
will be announced April 26, 2013, with each team competing for cash prizes totaling $14,000!
Be sure to check out ARGUS Software's newsletter for University Challenge updates and to see who this year's top winners will be.
We applaud and support the efforts of every team participating in this challenge - good luck!
Here at ARGUS Software, we are committed to providing the real estate sector with the tools to analyse and forecast asset values and performance. Globally, our software is at the heart of many real estate companies.
We are committed to supporting universities and schools offering real estate courses, and ARGUS Software products are already in use at many universities throughout the world such as Sheffield Hallam University, London South Bank University and Kingston. We are regularly invited to give lectures for graduate and postgraduate students and are now furthering our endeavours to work with universities and schools.
We are now going even further to work with universities and schools with the relaunch of our University Programme.
Key features of our commitment:
SOFTWARE AT NO CHARGE: Industry-standard packages ARGUS Developer, ARGUS
Valuation - Capitalisation, ARGUS Valuation - DCF will be made available
at no charge to all qualifying establishments. These will provide server-based
installations for up to 50 users.
PRODUCT CERTIFICATION: New product certification packages will be available
for the products previously listed. These will be chargeable, but will offer
students the opportunity to obtain a qualification confirming their knowledge
of the tools.
CERTIFICATION PACKS: Certification packs will include personal, academic
licences for student use, access to training materials, formal classroom
training delivered by professional trainers and a comprehensive online examination.
EXPERIENCE: Our clients are the employers in the real estate sector. They
are fully supportive of our educational goals and, in particular, they demand
that new entrants into the sector are equipped with a proven knowledge of
the standard software tools.
Students will be able to access the most advanced and most commonly used tools for valuations, appraisals and analyses. This will give your students an advantage when entering the market as they will already have knowledge of ARGUS Software products. A series of recent job adverts stated that candidates with knowledge of these products were preferred.
"ARGUS Software programs are extremely versatile teaching aids, which can be used to demonstrate basic principles and real world complex appraisals at under and postgraduate levels"
Nigel Rapley, London South Bank University
"At Kingston University we realise that equipping our students with the skills that employers need is one of our top priorities. As ARGUS Software is now the industry standard in the UK, training on the ARGUS Valuation - Capitalisation and ARGUS Developer packages now forms a fundamental component of our Real Estate courses."
Richard Cooper, Kingston University
