New commercial real estate certificate launches

Reflection and transparency in office-building windows

Faculty from the School of Hotel Administration at the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business, in collaboration with eCornell, the university's online-learning unit, have developed a unique online program focused on commercial real estate investment projects. From property development to valuation and management, the new Commercial Real Estate certificate program prepares real estate professionals to successfully develop and manage real estate assets.

"We walk students through the entire real estate process, from start to finish, unifying the specialized knowledge and principles in a very intentional way. Whether you're new to real estate, or looking to move up in the industry, this certificate provides a robust overview grounded in application. Throughout the program, participants are sent out to do the real work—modeling, inspecting, calculating," said faculty co-author Jan deRoos, HVS Professor of Hotel Finance and Real Estate at the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business.

The Commercial Real Estate certificate, offered 100-percent online through eCornell, comprises six courses designed to be completed in three to five hours per week. To create a well-rounded curriculum, deRoos collaborated with Hotel School colleagues Jeanne Varney and Bradford Wellstead—combining expertise to provide a rich learning experience. Through the team's courses, participants will learn and practice:

  • Planning a real estate development project
  • Managing a project budget, schedule, and contingencies
  • Developing a real estate investment strategy
  • Structuring and financing real estate investment deals
  • Effectively leasing and maintaining real estate properties
  • Managing real estate assets for success

This program is ideal for real estate developers, professionals with financial or operational responsibility for real estate investments, financing and asset management professionals, or people aspiring to work for real estate funds, REITs, or real estate advisory firms. Students who complete all courses receive a Commercial Real Estate certificate from Cornell University's SC Johnson College of Business.
