BUSI 101 (3) Capital Markets and Real Estate This course examines the impact of current monetary and fiscal policies on real estate investment decisions. The overall quality of production and the overall price level are used to monitor developments in the economy as a whole. The monetary system is studied as a crucial element in determining the long-run behaviour of price levels, the inflation rate, and other nominal variables. Monetary and fiscal policy is analyzed through open and closed economies.

The course emphasizes the use of financial accounting information as a decision-making tool; addresses the limitations of accounting information and encourages a critical evaluation of choices made in selecting accounting policies. Throughout the course, students will study the financial reporting of a chosen real company and learn to understand and interpret the information provided.

BUSI 300 (3) Urban and Real Estate Economics This course examines urban and real estate economics, illustrating how economic principles affect the demand for real estate, the operation of real estate markets, and the relationship between land use, land value and location. The overall objective of the course is to introduce the most important issues and topics in the study of cities and real estate markets, and to show how microeconomic principles can be used to critically analyze these problems BUSI 330 (3) Foundations of Real Estate Appraisal Introduction to concepts and techniques for appraising the value of real estate. This course begins with an introduction to the appraisal profession in Canada and summarizes the appraisal process. The three classic approaches to value are presented and analyzed as they may be applied to single-family and small, multi-family residential properties.

The course covers how houses are sited, designed, and constructed in Canada, as well as how factors such as design, material selection, and construction type affect their value.
