Course description

This on campus, active learning weekend is an immersive learning experience for investing in real estate. Students participate in a property investment simulation based on real-life assets in the Harvard Square area. Working in teams, students gain hands-on experience in conducting market research, identifying acquisition targets, performing financial due diligence, and developing persuasive investment proposals. At the end of the weekend, teams present their investment opportunities to the class, exposing students to a variety of presentation styles and techniques that can strengthen their own investment pitches in the future. Augmented by Harvard Business School case studies, the experience takes students from Harvard's campus into the neighborhoods beyond as they practice market analysis and real estate investment decision making. For complete and current details about this Harvard Extension course, see the description in the DCE Course Search.
