GWU Draws On MBA's Expertise
CampusMBA, the educational arm of the Mortgage Bankers Association, has formed a partnership with The George Washington University (GWU) Center for Real Estate and Urban Studies to offer the Executive Institute, an executive-level series of real estate education courses. This exclusive program, designed for mortgage banking executives who make strategic financial decisions, consists of four two-day courses where students work in teams on real-world case studies and computer simulations. The curriculum was developed by both CampusMBA and GWU.
"In this highly competitive mortgage industry with ever tightening margins, executives are consistently faced with new and challenging decisions that impact the future of their businesses," said Dan Thoms, vice president of education and business development at MBA. "By partnering with GWU, the Executive Institute provides mortgage industry executives with cutting edge management and strategic theories that they can bring to their companies and careers."
Each of the Executive Institute's four courses is led by Richard K. Green, George Washington University Oliver Carr Chair of Real Estate Finance and Professor of Finance. Mr. Green is a leader in the field of economics and housing, and his current research interests include the influence of housing tenure on neighborhoods and individuals, the distributional implications of tax and direct expenditures for housing, fiscal zoning, and the measurement of housing costs.
