Last week, Rutgers announced that it will now offer a graduate-level certification program dedicated to development and redevelopment through the Rutgers Business School Center for Real Estate in partnership with the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy.
The program will cover various courses including land use planning, property tax regimes, urban redevelopment, environmental law and policy, community economic development, among others. The university foresees the program powering students with multi-faceted knowledge crucial to working in the development/redevelopment field.
“This certificate focuses on the theories, methods, practical skills, and contextual knowledge needed to work at a high-level within the industry. This innovative and interdisciplinary program integrates existing coursework offered at the esteemed Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and the Center for Real estate providing students with an important skill set and knowledge of estate for future careers in real estate, public planning and urban design” said Morris A. Davis, the academic director of the Rutgers Business School Center for Real Estate in the program’s news release.
Registration for Spring 2017 is already underway at Rutgers’ Newark campus and will be open through January 17th. The certification is currently only open to Rutgers Master of City & Regional Planning and MBA students.
