Real Estate Certificate Programs

Real estate projects have many moving pieces — large investments, groups of stakeholders, and teams of individuals working together to bring the projects to success, often over several years. Cornell’s flexible professional certificate programs cover today’s most relevant real estate concepts and strategies for commercial properties and hotels. The programs will equip you with the knowledge and skills to analyze real estate markets, navigate investments and finance, evaluate development opportunities, and more.

On day one of each course, you will be introduced to your course facilitator—an expert in the field—who will guide you, help you apply the material to your circumstances, and answer your specific questions. All courses are rich with examples, timely discussions, and assignments to help you apply your learning to real-world challenges and opportunities.

From perfecting project pitches to exploring best practices for sustainability, earning a Cornell real estate certificate will position you to make strategic decisions that advance your real estate projects.
