International interest in New York real estate has played a big part in the nascent housing recovery; it’s also filling classrooms at New York University’s Schack Institute of Real Estate. Registration for this fall’s noncredit classes began this week, with new courses ranging from green building to hotel investment on offer.

Schack has increased marketing overseas due to the rising number of international students enrolling in its classes from China, Brazil, Mexico and elsewhere. The institute is also making it easier for students to enroll and study from abroad; the program is, for the first time, offering 30 percent of its more than 500 classes online, said Rosemary Scanlon, divisional dean of NYU Schack.

Although fall registration is not yet complete, the program is expecting at least 800 students to enroll for graduate programs such as M.S. in construction management, real estate and real estate development, and no less than 1,600 students to sign up for noncredit courses, including Solar Essentials, Real Estate Capital Markets and Financing Real Estate Development Projects  – Christopher Cameron
