“I enrolled in EDPREM primarily to gain more knowledge in Marketing, but because the course was so interesting, I ended up completing the program.

As a working professional and a devoted family-man, managing work-life balance and the opportunity to study from a reputable school via online delivery were key decision points for me.

The Saturday online class format allowed me to plan around my work and family schedules to complete group work outputs and feasibility studies. Group projects and open discussions with professors allowed for deeper understanding on key learning topics, which I found to be efficient and effective in learning important concepts.

Despite the coursework being largely online, I found my professors to be highly engaging and accessible when I needed additional support.

Participants can expect to gain a solid understanding of the entire real estate business, enhance their competencies, and or update their knowledge. As VP for Operations of a real estate development company, I find the program to be particularly effective at enhancing my knowledge on all the important facets in the real estate business.”
