The certificate program is ideal for students who have experience in commercial real estate...students with residential real estate experience will also benefit." Collete English Dixon Executive Director of Roosevelt's Marshall Bennett Institute of Real Estate

The Marshall Bennett Institute of Real Estate at Roosevelt University is pleased to announce its new Graduate Certificate in Real Estate Development, the first of its kind to be offered in the Midwest.  The 12-credit-hour program, which can be completed in two semesters (based on two courses per semester), begins in fall 2019.

The program offers academic and practical knowledge for achieving success in the property development sector of the real estate industry. The courses provide fundamental real estate knowledge, specific real estate development process knowledge and project efforts that are applicable to many careers within the industry.

“The certificate program is ideal for students who have experience in commercial real estate, however, students with residential real estate experience will also benefit from the concepts, application, and analysis provided in the courses,”  said Collete English Dixon, executive director of Roosevelt’s Marshall Bennett Institute of Real Estate. "It also provides the flexibility for those who complete the program to apply earned credits toward a graduate degree at a later date.”

For more information on the certificate program, contact Collete English Dixon at cenglishdixon@Roosevelt.edu or (312) 341-3767.

The Institute also offers an undergraduate major in real estate toward a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree and two graduate degree programs, the Master of Science in Real Estate and the Master of Business Administration with a concentration in Real Estate. These degree programs offer specialized classes and an inter-disciplinary approach combining urban economics with "hands-on" real estate learning.

Since its founding in 2002, the Marshall Bennett Institute of Real Estate has grown to become one of the most diverse graduate real estate programs in the country and has more than 300 graduates, many of whom work at Chicago firms.
