Schack Institute of Real Estate
Management of the Real Estate Firm
This course examines the opportunities and challenges involved in formulating and implementing strategies by taking a "system" view of organizations. Students examine multiple aspects of how managers address the real estate industry, strategy, structure, culture, tasks, people, and outputs. The course helps students understand and analyze how managers can formulate and implement real estate business strategies effectively. It will be particularly valuable if you are interested in management consulting, investment analysis, or entrepreneurship - but it will help you to better understand and be a more effective contributor to any organizations you join, whether they are large, established real estate firms or real estate industry startups. Students will gain an understanding of social and ethical issues, data analysis skills, financial theories and a knowledge of the global, political and legal context within which business functions.
