Business Briefing Breakfast Series

For the past 12 years, the School of Business Administration has brought together executives, entrepreneurs and innovators from throughout the region and the country to discuss the trends and challenges facing business leaders today. Open to the public and offered at a discount to PSU students, the Business Briefings Series is held six times during the academic year.

The BOMA Real Estate Workshop

Each year students in the PSU Real Estate Development Workshop produce a development plan for a property site in the Portland or Seattle area. Assisted by the local chapter of the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA), a team of 11 PSU students in the Master of Real Estate Development (MRED) program focused on the Central Eastside.

The Pelett family is one of the largest property owners in this rapidly changing neighborhood and own the iconic City Liquidators business. The students’ plan will help the next generation of the Pelett family participate further in the economic revival of the Central Eastside district management plan.
