Classes Fall 2021


With successful in-person and virtual academies for the past 23 years, Project REAP (The Real Estate Associate Program) – the industry’s leading effort to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in the commercial real estate
industry – returns this Fall for the ULI/REAP Online Academy


The Academy, delivered in collaboration with ULI (the Urban Land Institute), will provide real estate education for students, professionals, and the public. This strategic partnership will build on a long-standing relationship and commitment to bridge the gap between talented diverse professionals and the world of commercial real estate. The 8-week Academy will provide a suite of on-demand courses, live webinars, and panel discussions taught by senior-level experts in the commercial real estate industry.

Additionally, successful completion of the program will provide participants with a free 1 year membership to ULI, a leading global real estate industry association that offers educational and professional networking opportunities. The value of the membership may exceed the cost of the tuition for the Academy.


What You Will Learn:

The purpose of this online course is to introduce commercial real estate terminology, concepts, and processes, that will
lay the foundation for a successful career in commercial real estate. Taught by esteemed faculty and industry leaders, participants should expect to spend approximately four-six hours to complete the weekly courses, which will include access to the on-demand module, videos, downloadable resources, and live webinars (Mondays and Thursdays from
5pm to 6:30 pm). A quiz will be provided at the end of each module.



Applicants must have a 4-year degree (or be a current graduating senior) from an accredited institution and demonstrate an interest in commercial real estate. Prior real estate experience is not a prerequisite as REAP seeks candidates from across a wide spectrum of disciplines. The tuition cost is $850.00.

Applications are slated to open Monday, August 16, 2021 and will close on Tuesday, September 7, 2021 (8:00 pm EST).  Classes begin on Monday, October 18.
