Harrison Street University, led by our Human Resources department, fosters the growth of the firm’s most valuable resource: our people. We carry out our mission by providing a broad array of personal and professional development opportunities. All employees are offered on a regular basis a variety of training topics and learning options to further develop skills related to performance, productivity, communications, team building, problem solving, and personal well-being.

Internship Program

Our flagship internship program has helped develop 60 interns in the areas of asset management, transactions, research, legal and operations. We provide each intern with hands-on experience that will help them succeed in their future careers.

“As an intern at Harrison Street, I worked on the Acquisitions team. From the first week, I was immediately impressed by the genuine care from everyone within the company for the interns growth and the incredible access we had to everyone even as interns. On my first day, I was already sitting in the IC Meeting. Even while being on the Acquisitions team, I had many opportunities to interact with all areas of Harrison Street such as Portfolio Management and Research simply because the interns expressed interest. Being an untraditional sophomore intern, there was a lot to learn. But the support I received was extremely beneficial, and by the end of my internship I was able to tackle projects that I would have never imagined working on at the beginning of my internship. Outside of work, the interns were often invited to sports events or other outings allowing us to further build relationships. The experience I had at Harrison Street was beyond my expectations and I am so thrilled I had the opportunity to work with the amazing people here.”

“The internship program at Harrison Street was a tremendous learning experience. From the first week, the intern leaders made sure that my intern class hit the ground running. We were involved in meetings, running financial models and market studies, and helping with the day-to-day tasks on both the Asset Management and Acquisitions teams. As a History major at a liberal arts college, my background was not finance, but over the 12 weeks Harrison Street employees were patient and thoughtful, giving me the freedom to independently think and work through tasks, but also offer guidance when I needed it. The rotational aspect of the program is especially unique and allowed me to experience a comprehensive look into the work and dynamics of both teams.”

CAROLINE CAMPBELL, 2018 INTERN

“This summer I hoped to gain an understanding of the decisions a real estate investment firm faces to raise, deploy, and return capital to investors, and how those decisions are analyzed. Throughout my twelve weeks with Harrison Street, I accomplished these goals and more. The team leaders were very inclusive, inviting us to join meetings and phone calls, and had a genuine interest in helping our intern class learn and improve. The tasks I worked on provided immediate value to real projects the teams were evaluating and I was included in the resulting analysis and discussions. Overall, the community and culture created by the leaders of Harrison Street allowed me to enjoy working with fellow employees, learn new skills and concepts every day and build relationships.”

DAVID WALSH, 2018 INTERN

“I am a real estate finance major at the University of Texas at Austin and I learned about Harrison Street through a career fair on my campus. Throughout the interview process Harrison Street stuck out to me because of their culture and it has been major reason I have enjoyed my summer as much as I have. The company is full of incredibly smart people who will always take time to help you or teach you something.

My favorite part of the internship was the fact that, even as an intern, I was given an opportunity to take on significant roles in real projects.

The internship at Harrison Street has improved my understanding of real estate investments by working side by side with various team members and allowing me to sit in meetings to see firsthand how the executive members think through deals.”
