Professional Real Estate Certificate Professional Real Estate Certificate
The Department of Finance, Insurance and Real Estate (FIR) offers a Professional Real Estate Certificate.  This certificate does not require previous training in real estate and is designed for both the student and professional. The certificate can be obtained as part of a degree program or as a stand alone course of study and is independent of any University of Memphis degree program.  To enroll in the program all that is required is to be admitted as a non degree student at the University. Sections of the required classes are available online and on campus. The individual courses are offered so the certificate program can be completed in a year. This certificate program is not eligible for financial aid and courses from other institutions cannot be transferred into the program.

The online courses have the same content, rigor and follow the same time schedule as the University of Memphis. The online option allows the student to complete these courses without leaving their home. Since the online courses are asynchronous, even though they still have set deadlines, they do not require a student to be online at a given time. The advantage of online is flexibility.

The Professional Real Estate Certificate is designed for those who want to obtain training in real estate without obtaining an undergraduate degree in real estate.  This program is for those desiring careers in real estate and related industries. This may include mortgage banking, banking, real estate development, real estate investment, real estate valuation and assessment, government, as well as real estate sales and property management.

The Professional Real Estate Certificate requires 18 credit hours. The program consists of five classes in real estate and one in finance. These courses are offered on campus and online:
  • FIR 3310 - Real Estate Principles
  • FIR 3410 - Business Finance
  • FIR 4310 - Real Estate Law
  • FIR 4320 - Real Estate Finance
  • FIR 4340 - Real Estate Appraisal
  • FIR 4350 - Real Estate Investment
This certificate is offered through the Fogelman College of Business and Economics, which is fully accredited by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the premier accrediting body in business education.
