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.

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.
