Homburg Academy has launched two new Bachelor programs: the BSc in Real Estate Development, and the BSc in Real Estate Finance and Investment, to begin in September 2013. The first of their kind to be offered entirely online, these interdisciplinary real estate programs are taught by specialists in diverse faculties and professional backgrounds, and feature integrative case studies, workshops, and capstone projects.
“These programs enable students to integrate courses as diverse as architecture and design, construction and project management, business, finance, law, and marketing, with a range of interesting electives,” said Academic Board Chair Dr. Tom Geurts. “The curriculum ensures that students integrate the courses in a real interdisciplinary experience, which mirrors the reality that real estate developers and investors face every day.”
The curriculum has been under development for over two years, with the participation of faculty and industry advisors. Courses will be taught by 70 top real estate instructors in 13 countries using on-demand video lectures, interactive social media learning, and weekly real-time video conference seminars.
“Learning is a social activity and these programs will use online technology in a supportive framework,” said Dr. Geurts. The program fee has been set at CDN$24,000 for the entire four year program comprising 40 courses. Over 20 full and partial scholarships will be available to students on a competitive basis.
Homburg Academy is situated on the banks of Lake Zurich in Switzerland, but also has a professional development and research institute, the Homburg Institute Canada, located in Prince Edward Island. Further information is available at: http://homburgacademy.org/programs/undergraduate
