The Real Estate Development Process: Part II course is structured on the principle that learning to make good decisions requires more than instruction; it requires interaction and practice. Consequently, the course engages students in discussion with the instructor and guest speakers, as well as in realistic development scenarios that demonstrate the complexities and interdisciplinary nature of real estate development. Participants engage in challenging case studies and interaction with other class members. Participants work in teams on several realistic case studies representing different stages of real estate development acquisition, entitlement, and full-scale development, giving them practical experience at each stage.
For each case study, participants receive real-world data from which they produce a viable strategy for their hypothetical projects. Through this hands-on approach, participants are introduced to higher-level concepts and real-life complexities of the development process. Prominent guest lecturers from the fields of finance, entitlement, construction, architecture, municipal finance, and entrepreneurial development discuss the development process from their own perspectives in an interactive setting.
Participants receive computer models, case descriptions, course outlines, and handouts on a CD or flash drive.
Participants should bring laptop computers to fully participate in the pro forma business modeling and case studies.
