Spring 2014 topic:
BUS 302-01: Seminar in Finance: Commercial Real Estate Investments (4). Prerequisite: BUS 221. Commercial Real Estate is a major investment asset class globally. This course is designed to provide both academic theoretical foundations for the nvestment decisions made by sector participants, as well as practical applications of the theory. The first two weeks cover the theory that underpins the industry. The third week primarily serves as an immersion into the actual investment strategies and processes of industry participants, as the class travels to Washington DC to meet with industry professionals, tour properties, and evaluates a variety of investment opportunities. The fourth week crystallizes the theory and industry knowledge as students evaluate, underwrite, and present “live” investment opportunities in a manner typically performed in large institutional real estate investment firms.
