Real estate represents approximately half of the world’s wealth and is the most important asset that most individuals will own in their life. Increased prominence of real estate has led to a growing demand for specialized skills in the analysis of development, investment and asset management decisions.
The Real Estate Program at Whitman is designed to help students learn to analyze local tax laws, zoning regulations, contracts, property management, valuation, real estate finance and capital markets. The program emphasizes the development of an understanding of real estate fundamentals and the capacity to put this knowledge to work in a changing business environment. Students have the opportunity to participate in hands-on experiential education classes in NYC and are offered specialized training in real estate modeling using Excel and Argus. Further insights are gained through continuous interaction with dedicated faculty and successful executives. These experiences give our students both the academic and real-world underpinnings needed to make an immediate and meaningful impact in this dynamic industry.
