Property Management, also known as Real Estate Management, is the professional operation of income-producing real estate based upon the owner’s objectives. Property Management is an interdisciplinary curriculum, requiring skills from: accounting and finance; property and business law; presentation and promotion; business intelligence; project management; construction management; environmental stewardship and sustainability; and, of course, real estate; property programming, design, and development; asset management; and property management. Drexel University’s Property Management curricula include dynamic courses and experiential learning to develop the requisite skills. Practical application of classroom theory not only exposes the student to the various types of real estate assets, it also creates an environment where a student’s soft skills are enhanced through networking with real estate management professionals and attendance at professional association events.
Drexel Property Management Faculty are experienced and credentialed practitioners. Furthermore, the Drexel Property Management Industry Advisory Board, comprised of regional and national real estate management executives, supports the program through curriculum input, guest lecturers, and an experiential learning resource.
