About the course
As yields are compressing in traditional asset classes, more and more investors are increasing capital allocations into real estate. With financing attributes beneficial to institutional investors, fund managers, and entrepreneurs alike, real estate has become an avenue to wealth and a source of portfolio diversification for a wide range of investment entities.
Taught by Columbia Business School’s top real estate faculty from the School’s esteemed Paul Milstein Center for Real Estate, the Real Estate as an Asset and Business program provides participants with a deep understanding of real estate valuation and investments — sharpening their acumen of real estate principles, teaching them how to mitigate risk in real estate investing, and strengthening their strategic decision-making capabilities in the field.
The program also introduces participants to businesses and strategies that disrupt and improve the way they buy, rent, sell, and manage real estate assets, including investment in disruptive real estate technologies and applications — insights that will help participants make better real estate investment decisions for the future. While touching on residential housing, the three-day program primarily focuses on the acquisition and management of income-producing commercial properties.
