Success in real estate demands a broad understanding of many diverse areas of the industry. Factors such as overbuilding, increasingly complicated finance investments, environmental concerns, sophisticated legal issues, and demanding regulatory constraints are becoming increasingly important concerns. Individuals who lack the requisite skills and knowledge necessary to manage these issues are at a distinct disadvantage.
In response to the growing demand for academic programs focusing on real estate and it's related issues, the Monmouth University Kislak Real Estate Institute offers a variety of programs suited for professionals, graduate, and undergraduate students.
The Certificate Program is a multidisciplinary program that would suit established professionals who must make real estate decisions as investors, asset managers, consultants, developers, or officers of financial institutions. Professionals in allied fields such as architecture, accounting, and financial services will find that this program provides the conceptual and practical skill needed for a productive career related to commercial real estate. The program is the only executive education real estate program in the State of New Jersey.
The Master of Business Administration Real Estate Track is designed to meet the needs of those whose careers center around the commercial real estate industry and are seeking advanced knowledge in the areas of real estate valuation, finance, lease, law, and development, as well as a solid business background.
Undergraduate education in the field is becoming increasingly necessary as real estate gains recognition as a profession. To meet this need, the Kislak Real Estate Institute has introduced a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in real estate where students are exposed to finance, development, law, construction, and all facets of the real estate business. This is the only program of its kind in New Jersey.
