Time slots are for 30 minutes between 9:30AM – 12:30PM

How should my founders and I divide the equity?

How do I protect my idea?

When should I start a company?

Who owns the IP?

How do I protect myself from risk in a business?

NEW COURSE: RE 370 Real Estate Data Modeling

The Department of Real Estate is offering a new course spring quarter, RE 370 Real Estate Data Modeling, which is part of our Real Estate Minor. The Real Estate Minor is waiting approval and should be announced no later than fall 2018. If students would like to register for this course and/or have questions about the minor, please have them email bestm2

RE 370: Real Estate Data Modeling
1030-1150 am

Gould 100

This is a project-based course where students will develop a suitability analysis for a client that is looking to acquire real property for a specific use. ESRI applications and tools such as ArcGIS Online will be used to develop the model. The purpose of the project is to learn how to use data for decision making and real property acquisition by identifying the best location for a project. The student will be responsible for selecting a specific client and project type to create a suitability model in ArcGIS Online. The first step is defining criteria for the model which includes understanding the factors that go into the decision-making process for acquisition of property for different uses. The second step involves gathering data, learning about different data sets and data types, and cleaning/preparing data for analyses. The third step is understanding the data with basic descriptive statistics and exploratory spatial data analysis. The fourth step is using other techniques such as hedonic models and spatial analyses to incorporate additional information into the model. The last step involves performing a sensitivity and error analysis to examine the robustness of the model.
