MGT129: Topics in Entrepreneurship: Frontiers in Real Estate (2 units)

Real estate is a multi-faceted industry that is undergoing important changes. The sector offers tremendous opportunities that extend well beyond vocations as real estate agents, brokers, and developers, and encompasses mortgage companies and banks (involved in financing the real estate deals), appraisers, investment banks, servicers, title companies, city regulators and planners, and various other government agencies. Over the past twenty years, the real estate industry has developed strong linkages with US financial markets and the IT sector, which has led to significant improvements in financing and investment opportunities, risk management, and the diffusion of information. Beyond that, the trend of corporate social responsibility is permeating real estate and is having a transformational effect on most aspects of planning, development and investment. Moreover, recent availability of large datasets and cutting-edge information technology. Technology is opening exciting opportunities for a new breed of real estate tech companies. This class explores the amalgamation of traditional real estate with innovations in finance, IT, and appreciation for social responsible investing to trace out the new frontiers in the industry.


Also, if you are interested in real estate, please consider this course offered by our colleagues at Urban Studies and Planning:


This is an important course for any student considering a career in urban planning, real estate or development.  It provides a solid foundation of information key to those professions and gives students an advantage in preparing for graduate school or in beginning their careers.

The course covers a broad range of material relating to regulatory processes, real estate transactions, land use regulation and environmental protection.  Specifically, the course addresses the following topics:

  • Legislative and judicial institutions and processes
  • Planning institutions and processes
  • Basics of real estate transactions
  • Basics of real estate finance
  • Governmental participation in development, through redevelopment, eminent domain and taxation
  • Land use regulation, including development approvals, historic preservation, growth management, landowner rights and obligations, and voter initiatives and referenda
  • Environmental regulation, including environmental review of development, climate change, coastal protection and natural habitat protection
  • Regulation and protection of natural resources, including water supply, water quality and air quality
  • Building and design regulation, including sustainability issues.

Course readings are from a text and from supplemental materials prepared by the instructor. Classes sessions consist of a combination of lectures and discussions. In addition, each student prepares a paper based on a current local controversy involving real estate, land use or environmental issues. This exercise provides students with research experience which will be highly valuable in future graduate studies and/or professional work. There is no final exam.

The course is taught by Cary Lowe, an attorney and urban planner who has worked extensively with public agencies, developers, citizen organizations and Indian tribes. Prior to teaching this course for the past three years at UCSD, he taught at UCLA, UCI and USC.
