Any suggestions for good certificate or executive programs in Real Estate? Specifically looking to sharpen real estate finance and analysis skills. I’m sure there is good free stuff out there but have company budget to spend on courses so would prefer something with a name and a network. Thanks!

Argus certification, Schack continuing education courses, linnemans book


Yes SFR so no argus. 1 goal of mine is to get more comfortable tying operations actions to financial statements.

Depends on your objective. If you go through real estate exam, you learn a lot. But there are finance classes for real estate. I did both and use that knowledge as an investor.


You have to be careful about the real estate courses sold by gurus. Some of those only cover the hustle and not any real content. Some may be good.


I agree. With the comments on short certificate courses. If u are not studying for 4 months it may not stick. Also you need some interaction time to build your network. You need to have clear goals ( better yet MVP) before going into the program.

General question, and I suspect the answer is no. Are there any employment or exec comp-related jobs in the entertainment industry?

How is the HSBC project at Capco with respect to WLB and work? And what are some good employee benefits that Capco offers better than others. And also benefits that Capco does not offer but most other companies do?

I'm frustrated. Everywhere I've worked I've gotten great reviews and even leadership awards. At my last company my boss was promoted to CAO. She hired a director but made her VP of HR at hire due to someone leaving. VP ran 6 HR directors out of the co (we all left without jobs lined up). After I left my team quit & the CAO was fired. Now they promoted this VP to a Sr VP. I gave so much, got nothing, yet she fell into SVP. I have a new Director level job. How do I break into the VP level?

Should I maximize for equity or IRR?
