Scott Peterson Peterson: “My students get the benefit of an industry professional teaching actual, real-time case studies in the business.”

SAN DIEGO—Recently, GlobeSt.com highlighted the value for real estate professionals of the University of San Diego’s Real Estate Finance, Investments and Development Certificateoffered through the school’s professional and continuing-education department—which partners with the Burnham-Moores Center at USD’s School of Business. Later, we spoke with Scott Peterson, SVP at CBRE, who teach the “Real Estate Finance and Capital Markets” course, and Nathan Moeder, a principal with London Moeder Advisors and instructor of the “Real Estate Investment and Income Analysis” course—both part of USD’s real estate certificate program. Here’s what you can learn from their courses that you might not learn elsewhere.

Nathan Moeder Moeder: “The class helps the students not only understand finance, but also the financial perspective as it relates to their own projects or investments on which they are working.”
