Advanced Certificate in Real Estate Development

The Advanced Certificate in Real Estate Development (CRED) is designed to help students develop the knowledge and skills needed to initiate, navigate, and manage real estate development projects, with a special emphasis on Northern California.  The curriculum emphasizes experiential, problem-based learning techniques, such as analysis of local real estate projects, discussions with local real estate professionals, and team-based studio projects that mimic realistic real estate development scenarios.

The certificate program is open to matriculated students enrolled in any graduate program at San José State University (SJSU).  The program is also open to students who hold a Bachelor's degree from an accredited institution.  Non-matriculated students may register for courses through SJSU's Open University.

Students interested in our Advanced Certificate Program should consult with the department's graduate advisor prior to beginning course work.
