Homburg, N.S. schools launch program
Charlottetown-based Homburg has announced a collaborate initiative to launch a new real estate development program.
Collaborating with Nova Scotia Community College and Mount Saint Vincent University, the program will focus on challenges and opportunities in the field for Atlantic Canada.
The executive certificate in real estate development, launching in September, will be a one-year professional development program offered online in collaboration with the Mount’s distance learning department.
Peter Mombourquette, chairman of business and tourism at the school, said through online classes and lectures, professionals will be able to participate from anywhere in the world.
The program will be delivered in five online modules, taking about a year in total to complete. Topics covered include the fundamentals of real estate development, project management, finance and risk management and real estate law.
In order to obtain the certificate, participants will complete an independent project that will require a holistic understanding of a real estate project from choosing a piece of land through to construction.
A panel of academics and real estate professionals will judge the project.
