BOMA SF Foundation Partnership

skyline of San Francisco at duskThe Building Owners and Managers Association, San Francisco Foundation (BOMA SF Foundation) has partnered with San Francisco State University to provide support for several courses in commercial real estate.

Students earn a bachelor of science degree in business administration with a concentration in finance, and a certificate in commercial real estate.

According to BOMA SF Foundation, “One of the most demanding issues facing the commercial real estate industry today is how to replace a large aging workforce soon to retire.”

More than just a new curriculum

BOMA SF Foundation’s partnership with SF State not only offers new curriculum, but also provides guest lecturers, supports students with scholarship opportunities, mentorships, as well as internships. This partnership will also provide students with a large network of commercial real estate professionals.

Earning a certificate in commercial real estate from San Francisco State gets students one step closer to job-readiness. To learn more, see Certificate in Commercial Real Estate.
