CED has launched a new Interdisciplinary Graduate Certificate in Real Estate (IGCRE) in collaboration with the Haas School of Business and Berkeley School of Law. This certificate represents the increased commitment of CED to promoting cross-disciplinary study and giving students the opportunity to understand how law, business, and design intersect in creating the built environment.
As part of the IGCRE, students enrolled in a CED, Haas, or Law graduate program will undertake specialized courses in urban and architectural design, learn about the development and entitlement process, become trained in financial modeling and market analysis, and be exposed to how housing policy and law shape real estate transactions. They will also have the opportunity to participate in a real estate competition such as the ULI/Hines Urban Design Competition, the Bank of America Low Income Housing Challenge, or the NAIOP Golden Shovel Competition.
The IGCRE will also indicate to potential employers that, in addition to having mastered the material in their major field, the student has successfully completed coursework on topics concerning the design, development, management and/or management of real estate.
Information about the requirements for this certificate is available at the Graduate Certificate Program page.
