Imran Jaffer Internships

The Imran Jaffer Internships celebrate and recognize third-year students in the Geography – Urban Development Program (UDP), or 3rd or 4th-year students in the Geography-UDP/Ivey HBA program, who share similar qualities, values and interests to Imran, and will help them pursue their dreams and aspirations towards a fulfilling career in commercial real estate. These are paid summer positions. Students will receive academic pass/fail credit on their transcripts after they submit a written report about their internship experience and the companies submit a student employee performance evaluation form.

Two internships have been secured through the Imran Jaffer Foundation for our Urban Development students for the summer of 2019, with Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) and with Wireless DNA, both in Toronto. We are very grateful to the foundation for making these internships possible. Past internship students share their experiences on the Imran Jaffer Foundation website, Warren Fung in summer 2017 and Dianne Ramos in summer 2016.
