Rutgers Announces New Certificate for MBAs in Real Estate
Rutgers University Business School has announced a new certification for MBAs with a concentration of study in Real Estate.
As part of a partnership with the school’s Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, the school will now offer the certificate for students eager to pursue the fields of real estate development and redevelopment.
Applicants who wish to enter the program during the spring 2017 semester have until January 17 to register.
Morris Davis, academic director and chair of the Rutgers Business School Center for Real Estate said, “This innovative and interdisciplinary program integrates existing coursework offered at the esteemed Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and the Center for Real estate providing students with an important skill set and knowledge of estate for future careers in real estate, public planning and urban design… [The] certificate focuses on the theories, methods, practical skills, and contextual knowledge needed to work at high level within the industry.”
The certificate program arrives during a pivotal time in the region, and across the country, for responsible development. With the shifting face of economies at the local, state and national levels, there is a growing necessity for a business education that addresses the importance of responsibility in aiding the changing faces of communities.
Courses of study will encompass environmental law and policy; community economic development; urban redevelopment; property tax policy and land use planning.
“We recognize that this program offers a high value, low cost way for students to expand their knowledge base and acquire additional skills that will help them both professionally and in development of sustainable communities that provide a high quality of life for residents,” noted David Listokin, urban planning and policy professor at the Bloustein School.
