CRE Leadership Masters Program


A Leadership Journey through Action, Collaboration, Thought, Instruction and Demonstration

Responding to the need in the market to prepare Commercial Real Estate (CRE) pros to meet the leadership challenges of tomorrow, BOMA Georgia has created a new and different approach to leadership growth that explores the qualities that are fundamental to CRE leadership and what tomorrow’s leaders must do to prepare for the future of real estate. This leadership journey features a variety of instruction styles, including experiential learning, both in teams and as an individual; executive coaching sessions; extracurricular coursework; and a program project presented by each participant at the conclusion of the program. Class size is limited and is first come, first serve. To offer a diverse leadership experience, registrants are also accepted based on their CRE segment and years of experience in the industry.

Each participant in the CRE Leadership Masters Program will be required to research, plan and implement a project. The purpose of these projects should be to demonstrate and put into practice what participants learn through the CRE Leadership Masters Program, and to contribute to your industry, company and association in a meaningful way. The program is held biennially with the second class beginning February of 2018. Applications for the 2018 program closed Nov. 30, 2017.
