Fordham Real Estate Institute Partners with HGAR to Offer Professional Certificate Programs to Members

STARTING IN SEPTEMBER 2017

The Real Estate Institute at Fordham University’s School of Professional and Continuing Studies recently announced the expansion of their professional certificate programs to Westchester County.

As part of this exciting expansion, The Real Estate Institute has launched a partnership with the Hudson Gateway Association of REALTORS® (HGAR), wherein HGAR Members have access to a preferential tuition package to help advance their careers through the program’s professional real estate certificates.

Beginning in September, in person courses in the Real Estate Finance & Investment and Construction Project Management certificate tracks will take place at Fordham’s West Harrison campus, as well as at the University’s Lincoln Center campus and online.

Anthony R. Davidson, PhD. MBA, Dean of the School of Professional and Continuing Studies, formally announced the partnership during an information session on June 22 at HGAR’s offices in White Plains.

These certificate programs, developed for current professionals, up-and-coming professionals, and investors/owners, match a practical curriculum with masterful instructors. Fordham’s Real Estate Institute adjunct faculty are industry veterans from companies like RXR, Douglas Elliman, Shorenstein, Starrett Corporation, Jones Lang LaSalle, CBRE, Plaza Construction, I-Grace and others. Six week and intensive courses are offered in person at Fordham’s Lincoln Center and Westchester campuses, as well as online. Students are offered the flexibility to take in person courses in both locations.  The professional certificate programs are the first of what the Real Estate Institute plans to be a robust slate of offerings that will be rolled out throughout the remainder of the year.
