In addition, the collaboration between the MIT Center for Real Estate and MIT Professional Education provides an exciting opportunity for real estate professionals worldwide to expand their global network.
Albert Saiz, director of the MIT Center for Real Estate and Daniel Rose Associate Professor of Urban Economics and Real Estate notes, “The collaboration between the MIT Center for Real Estate and MIT Professional Education opens an exciting opportunity for real estate professionals, investors, policy-makers, and executives worldwide. Our joint new program provides an unparalleled opportunity for a cohort of professionals and executives to obtain state-of-the art insights about key factors and investment strategies driving real estate markets, and to deepen their understanding of the development process. MIT professors and lecturers are globally-renowned thought leaders, researchers, and sought-after consultants in these topics, but also great lecturers. MIT, and the intellectually-exciting and vibrant city of Cambridge (Massachusetts), provide the perfect environment for summer learning in this two-week program.”
Bhaskar Pant, executive director of MIT Professional Education states, “We are very excited to offer this new program from MIT’s Center for Real Estate as part of MIT Professional Education’s portfolio of summer short programs aimed at a wide array of working professionals globally.” “Our audience is increasingly multi-disciplinary,” he added. “As technical leaders, our participants need to be competent in finance and management matters and vice versa; and knowledge in real estate finance and development is particularly critical to many due to the pivotal role that real estate plays in the capital outlay and operational aspects of most enterprises today. With the addition of this certificate program in real estate finance and development to our portfolio, we eagerly look forward to serving an even more diverse set of professionals and executives from an array of industry sectors from around the world.” said Pant.
