Chaifetz School Announces New Graduate Certificate in Real Estate
The Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business at Saint Louis University has announced the creation of a new post-baccalaureate certificate in real estate.
The certificate, which will be available to students beginning in the fall 2022 semester, is designed for industry professionals looking for career advancement and those who plan to get real estate occupations.
“The course work emphasizes analyzing cash flows, determining values, and measuring economic returns of real estate investments and other practical applications through projects based on actual data,” said Naresh Bansal, professor and chair of the Department of Finance at the Chaifetz School.
Olgun Sahin, associate professor of finance, added that the certificate will allow students to gain an understanding of three main aspects of real estate: the real estate decision-making environment, analysis of real estate decisions and the financing of real estate transactions.
Projects in the program will involve analysis of pending real estate projects, property acquisitions, property developments, and financing decisions.

Chaifetz School of Business at Saint Louis University has shaped the future of industry for more than a century as one of the oldest business schools west of the Mississippi.
