Commercial Real Estate

Executive Education Programs

In the next decade, global financial trends will dramatically reshape real estate markets, disrupt historical business models, and create great challenges for growth. As real estate is a vast and highly segmented industry, real estate professionals from one area may find their previous education and training either too narrowly focused or insufficient for transitioning into higher-level career opportunities. To successfully navigate these shifting economic, financial, and legal environments, real estate professionals need to further equip themselves with broader and deeper market knowledge and sharper analytical and practical skills. We invite real estate professionals seeking leadership advancement across the country to acquire practical, cutting edge graduate level education in private equity real estate, private debt/finance, publicly-traded real estate (REITs), securitized debt and real estate development.
