The Graduate Certificate in Real Estate (GCRE) is a 15 credit hour program that equips students with advanced skills in real estate development. Due to the robust real estate climate in the Mountain West (Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming), one of the nation’s fastest-growing regions, there is a significant need for developers.
It’s estimated that by 2040, the Mountain West will double in population to more than 30 million people with nearly 20 million jobs. Most of the existing built environment will be rebuilt. Several trillion dollars will be spent on development in the region over the next generation. Real estate professionals will play a leading role in the development and redevelopment of the region.
Main topics of the GCRE include:
- Market research
- Information tools for real estate research
- Net present value analysis
- Urban development methods and policies
