Spring 2012 MBA Course

B8399-002: Global Real Estate Investment

T - B Term, 04:00PM to 07:15PM
Location: WJW 310

Instructor: Camille Douglas

This half-term course, open to 1st year and 2nd year students, will introduce students to the fundamentals of global real estate investment from an institutional perspective through an exploration of specific strategies for structuring global real estate portfolios. It will also provide students with an analytical framework and the tools to analyze and value cross-border real estate investments in developed and emerging markets. Given current market conditions, attention will also be paid to asset management strategies.


This course will be case-based, but will also rely heavily on faculty and guests lectures. Classes will typically include:

  • Top-down macroeconomic analysis of target geographies
  • Exploration of a specific global real estate investment strategy
  • Bottom-up risk-adjusted return analysis of real estate investments


The course will culminate in the preparation and presentation of an investment memorandum on a specific global real estate investment opportunity.
