The real estate major is designed to provide an educational foundation for students interested in pursuing careers in real estate. Career areas include real estate investment and financial analysis, real estate finance and mortgage lending, corporate real estate asset analysis, and commercial and residential real estate brokerage.

Core competencies to be developed include the ability to analyze: real estate investment opportunities from both investor and corporate perspectives; financial and lending alternatives; and the effect of financing and taxation on real estate asset cash flows, net present values, and internal rates of return. Students will also learn the fundamentals of real estate markets and develop an understanding of the legal framework surrounding real estate ownership, title transfer, and sale.

All real estate students are encouraged to participate in the Temple University chapter of the Lambda Alpha International Student Association (LAISA). Chapter members can take advantage of career advisement, resume development, and networking opportunities. LAISA is a subsidiary of Lambda Alpha International (LAI), the international honorary organization for real estate scholars and practitioners.

Real estate majors are also eligible for various university and professional scholarships, including the program’s E. Fred Kemner Award. For more information please contact Professor Huffman at (215) 204-6675.
