Coastal Carolina University's Wall College of Business recently opened the Grant Center for Real Estate and Economic Development.
The new Grant Center will be open to both students and real estate professionals. It will offer courses in commercial and investment real estate, as well as study-based scholarships, internships and technical study tours of international sites. A particular focus of the center will be international property development, finance and investment.
For professionals, it will provide networking opportunities, market analysis and applied studies for those in the area. In addition, it will host an annual real estate and economic summit and awards gala, offer regular seminar talks and provide consultation for private, government and nonprofit groups.
"The opportunities afforded by the Grant Center will not only assist in attracting and retaining the highest caliber of students, but will also contribute to Coastal Carolina University's reputation for preparing tomorrow's leaders in the global marketplace," Barbara Ritter, dean of the Wall College of Business, said.
