From Accountant to Global Real Estate Influencer
Shawana McGee (MBA ’07) leveraged her Wisconsin MBA to become a global real estate influencer. Her MBA education, she says, provided a solid understanding of real estate fundamentals and market mechanics that helped to flatten the learning curve. Shawana explored China’s real estate potential as part of her MBA experience and worked in expanded asset management in Europe after graduation. She rose to principal of Bentall GreenOak where she manages assets from her office in Luxembourg. “At the end of the day,” says Shawana, “it’s not about me. It’s about who’s coming after me. That’s the way we make this world a better place. My legacy ambition is to mentor the next generation and make a social impact."
