“Real estate investments play a major role for both private and institutional investors,” said Robert Morgenstern, REI program director, “Fordham REI’s commitment to staying at the forefront of a dynamic real estate industry is upheld by the launch of the Graduate Certificate in Real Estate Finance, which follows on the heels of our recently-announced Graduate Certificate in Construction Management. Through the Real Estate Finance certificate, professionals will gain practical, real-world knowledge and skills needed to succeed, including cash flow analysis, financial modeling, valuation and debt and equity capital structuring.”
The 15-credit curriculum includes courses on real estate finance, structures and capital markets, valuation and investment analysis, and credit analysis and underwriting.
