Foundations of Real Estate Management is a BOMA International course that is offered by local BOMAs. This entry-level course is taught by BOMA/Chicago once per week for seven weeks in the spring of each year, covering the fundamentals of commercial real estate administration, management, building systems, accounting and reporting, contract management and more. The course offers classroom instruction from seasoned professionals who will teach you the fundamentals and give you behind-the-scenes tours of outstanding buildings throughout downtown Chicago. The class meets in various downtown office buildings, so you not only have the opportunity to learn from seasoned pros and network with peers - you get a behind-the-scenes tour of outstanding buildings. The cost of the course is $800 for BOMA/Chicago members and $850 for non-members.

Each Foundations of Commercial Real Estate course will provide you with in-person training and small class sizes that facilitate learning, discussion and team activities.
