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 its 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.
Students can obtain a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a Concentration in Real Estate and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance and Real Estate. Students are exposed to finance, development, law, construction, and all facets of the real estate industry. It is the first such program offered at any New Jersey college or University.
A number of scholarship funds have been endowed and are available to real estate students.
