MCR Scholarship

2022 MCR Scholarship

Committing to your professional development is one of the most important steps anyone can take, and the corporate real estate sector is no different. As the industry faces a period rapid change and organisations redefine the role of the workplace, this is more true than ever.

Over the past two years, we’ve been able to offer an accelerated 18-month Master of Corporate Real Estate (MCR) program in Australia. Members are now able to study the program locally and this year, we’re excited to sponsor a full scholarship to the program for a deserving CoreNet Global Australia member.

About the Master of Corporate Real Estate
The CoreNet Global MCR is the profession’s most prestigious designation. The MCR professional designation was established in 1982 as a comprehensive career development program which includes completion of six multi-day seminars within a two-year period. Continuing professional development is required to maintain the designation.

The MCR program is:

  • Relevant and practical, with a strong emphasis on learning from case studies
  • Taught by industry experts
  • Highly interactive.

As well as broadening your knowledge, studying with a local cohort helps to build deep relationships with your peers and industry experts.

"The CoreNet Global MCR program has been a highlight of my career. The MCR program was based on real life scenarios with excellent case studies from industry experts and it was a great opportunity to meet a wide range of Corporate Real Estate professionals. Anyone looking for a course that can really help elevate their career and industry experience, the MCR program is for you."
Leah Ong, Property & Projects Manager, Sime Darby Motors Group

"Completing CoreNet Global MCR program was an engaging experience. Throughout the course I was provided a holistic insight into all facets of CRE and it was a great balance which included information sharing from industry experts and case studies. What I found particularly valuable, when working collaboratively with others was to apply these learning to complex, real-life case studies, with support readily available from knowledgeable facilitators. I highly recommend this course for anyone looking for a strong foundation in CRE."
Deborah Sweetman, Head of Corporate Real Estate & Services-ANZ, Swisse RE

"Undertaking the CoreNet Global MCR program has been both challenging and rewarding. It has provided insights into real-world scenarios and a chance to share experience with CRE professionals from very varied backgrounds. I highly recommend the program for both the learnings it provides and the opportunity to make strong and long-lasting industry connections."
Daniel Haine, Grosvenor Performance Group

“I thoroughly enjoyed the MCR. Having been one of the less experienced property industry professionals in the 2021 cohort, I found myself listening and absorbing a lot of the experiences others in the cohort shared. 

The MCR is structured in such a way which encourages everyone to contribute and challenge ideas or business frameworks. Imagine this like an incubator for thoughts, which grow or widen your perspective on the range of different topics. I would recommend the MCR to anyone who wishes to piece the full Corporate Reals Estate puzzle together. In the process, you’ll also have the privilege of bonding with people within the industry, who may continue to be that source of experience and knowledge throughout your career.”
Cameron Gardiner, Assistant Development Manager – Real Estate NSW/ACT, McDonalds Australia
