Real Estate Finance and Investment Center
2013 Fall Conference and Challenge
November 20 - 21, 2013
Our Real Estate Finance and Investment Center is the first research center at a leading university to specialize in the intersection of real estate and finance. The center takes advantage of the finance department's exceptional faculty.
We cultivate cutting-edge research on finance-related real estate issues like
- the valuation of mortgage-backed securities
- the financial structure of real estate investment trusts
- the agency issues associated with real estate financing agreements
- the efficiency of real estate investment markets
The undergraduate and MBA educational offerings in real estate will continue to be highly multidisciplinary, drawing from finance, economics, law and community and regional planning. The research emphasis is on real estate finance.
