Course Trailer | MIT SA+P Commercial Real Estate Analysis and Investment


Real estate has become a more mainstream asset
class in the investment world. Major institutions, major financial institutions, investment institutions, more and more, are recognising they need to have a substantial allocation to real estate
in order to have a good well balanced portfolio. You do have to be careful with real estate,
say more than stocks or bonds because if you are investing with real estate in the private
property market, it’s not as efficient or as competitive a market. So you can end up overpaying
for an asset so you have to be careful, you have to do your homework. We now have both the theory and the data to
make this a rigorous industry. This change is going to happen in the culture of the industry,
particularly as the generations turn over and we get a new generation of people in the
industry. Even if you are already a well practiced person
in real estate investment, you’re going to learn some new stuff here. A lot of new
stuff. It’s a very exciting time. It’s really
a revolutionary time in the industry. We teach the cutting edge at MIT. In fact, we go beyond
the cutting edge. We’re going to be teaching stuff here that nobody else teaches.
