The Project Deutschland case study serves as the final exam for the Real Estate Portfolio Management
course. It is similar to the other case studies in that it is designed to require students to qualitatively and
quantitatively analyze a real estate problem or challenge, develop a strategic solution that embodies both
qualitative and quantitative objectives, and prepare a written recommendation advocating that solution. The
strategic solution must be quantifiable and economically justifiable and presented in memorandum format,
written intelligently, prepared in a professional manor, and be free of grammatical errors. The structure of the
memo must be as follows:
Issues (e.g., project, analysis, market, etc.).
Detailed Analysis* (e.g., what was considered, how were assumptions set, etc.).
Disclosures/disclaimers (if applicable)
Note that the analysis portion is the “meat” of the case. This MUST include a quantifiable justification for the
recommendation(s) as well as defend the assumptions made. It also must include multiple scenarios and
“what-ifs” as sensitivities. It is not enough to submit a recommendation based on the return expected alone;
risk must be quantified, analyzed, and used within the context of recommendation support.
