The Applied Real Estate Investment Trust (AREIT) program allows real estate students the rare opportunity to manage a live real estate portfolio of publicly traded investments worth $1.5 million. Under the direction of an advisory board of real estate professionals, students conduct thorough research, create investment recommendations, and gain experience in the emerging capital markets associated with real estate assets. You will use the latest analytical and modeling programs to calculate rates of return, tax assessments, and future growth. Make real business decisions using ARGUS valuation software, and gain familiarity with real-time financial information from Bloomberg Professional, SNL Financial, and Real Capital Analytics. Experience in making strategic decisions with real assets and industry tools is key preparation for the next phase of your career.
