Schack Institute of Real Estate
Advanced Development Finance
Financial structure is a key element of modern real estate development, including both debt and equity. Building upon prior finance and development courses, this elective delves deeply into the nuances of financial modeling, alternative financial mechanisms including securitization, and risk analysis. The course includes review of mega-projects (over $1 Billion), portfolio theory, and innovative techniques for small projects. The course also discusses mixed use projects with multiple financing sources and the use of public financing and guarantees. Students will do extensive financial analysis, and modeling incorporating use of private, public market and government funding sources.
