Real Estate Economics

This course, offered through Schack Institute’s Executive Education division, introduces topics in real estate economics that relate to the built environment. At its core, the course addresses key ideas in urban economics, such as agglomeration and scale economies. The course examines linkages between regional, national, and global economies and real estate markets. It explores positive and negative economic externalities that distort the urban built space, as well as local policies such as zoning and rent control that have perverse effects on development. Substantial student participation is expected throughout the course.
