This six-week course focuses on design and implementation of strategies for the management of portfolios of private-market real estate investments. Topics include devising alpha strategies, approaches to diversification, creating investment plans to achieve different risk profiles (core, value-add, opportunistic), performance measurement and analysis, etc. Class sessions will be made up of lectures, guest speakers and student presentations. There will be a final case project, to be done in groups, due after class sessions have ended. Grading will be based on class participation and written assignments. Although not a prerequisite, B8399-005 Real Estate Capital Markets is highly recommended. Students who have not taken Real Estate Capital Markets may need additional preparation prior to or in conjunction with the class.
