Real Estate students have access to the most up-to-date industry computer software. Including:
ARGUS: The industry’s most used valuation and cash flow analytic program. Argus derives profit and loss statements and cash flow set-ups. The program can also derive values and returns. Students who learn ARGUS at the Merrick School of Business have a significant advantage when they graduate. This tool is used in investing and finance firms, as well as commercial marketing.
Co-STAR: The listing for all commercial real estate across the United States. Co-star lists rent levels, pass-through costs, available space, and any other information that can be useful to buyers and renters. The School of Business has the listings for the entire United States. Thus students can compare Baltimore to other cities and areas.
