NEW YORK, March 10, 2011 - The NYU Schack Institute of Real Estate today unveiled an exciting new roster of intensive course offerings including one that will enable students in Europe to attend classes in Prague, Czech Republic.

In addition, these intensives can be applied toward the completion of a professional certificate program.
