The Ross Program is offered an intensive executive education experience. The program is scheduled over four consecutive weekends, Thursday through Saturday with students attending lectures from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm each day. Most evenings also feature panel presentations focused on specialized real estate topics.
The four-week curriculum is concentrated in real estate finance, delivered by notable USC faculty. Additional instruction on related subjects is provided by experienced real estate practitioners along with field trips, panel discussions, case studies, and group projects. The courses are fluid and incorporate topics that reflect current market conditions. A highlight of the program is a team case study allowing students to apply and integrate what they’ve learned in a challenging “real world” project.
Ross Program sessions are held twice a year – a Winter Session and a Summer Session – on the University of Southern California campus. Each cohort consists of 15 to 25 students, allowing for maximum participation and extensive faculty–student interaction.
