Real Estate Finance and Investment Program
You will learn core competencies to accomplish the following:
- Identify where & when to anticipate real estate investment or real estate development opportunities
- Determine which opportunities are best suited to your investment objectives and preferred business model
- Construct dynamic excel models to predict the investment’s financial performance from the first year of operations through the eventual sale of the property
- Test the property’s ability to withstand changes in the market
- Recommend investment strategies that will be convincing to investment committees, lenders, and equity investors
The program is divided into eight courses that take you through the entire process of financial analysis step-by-step. These courses follow two parallel tracks: one for understanding the theory, set-up and computation, and two, for learning how to use Excel to do the analysis. You will receive a set of Excel spreadsheets, including worksheets and solutions. You will learn how to use Excel to evaluate a real-world case study and how to adapt the Excel spreadsheets to your own investments.
