Fordham University is taking on NYU and Baruch College by launching a real estate program at its Manhattan campus.

The program, dubbed Fordham Real Estate institute at Lincoln Center, will accept its first students in the spring of 2017. It will offer a six-course certificate program, as well as the chance to enroll in individual courses.

“No other universities are offering certificate programs that match Fordham’s quality and flexibility,” Fordham School of Continuing and Professional Studies dean Anthony Davidson boasted in a statement.

The new program will compete for students with NYU’s Schack Institute of Real Estate, which offers both certificate programs and Masters degrees, and Baruch College’s Steven L. Newman Real Estate Institute, which offers certificate programs. Columbia University’s business school offers an MBA real estate program.

Robert Morgenstern, who previously worked as the academic director of the Schack Institute, was selected to lead Fordham’s real estate program.

The Jesuit university’s new program will cover four fields: finance and investment, financial modeling, development, and construction project management. The faculty list includes JLL’s TRData LogoTINY Randy Apfelbaum and 48 Capital LLC’s Efrat Sharon. — Konrad Putzier
