Following on from a very successful offering in October 2012, the University of Cape Town and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania are again offering a one week course on housing finance in Sub-Saharan Africa, from 7 – 12 October 2013, in Cape Town, South Africa. The programme will be held at UCT’s Graduate School of Business Breakwater Campus, located at the V&A Waterfront. Lectures will follow a structured lesson plan but will allow for open discussion between participants, presenters and discussion leaders. The course blends academic principles with practical, real-life applications. Case studies will be used where appropriate.
Teachers and presenters in the programme are recognised leaders in the housing and real estate field, and have experience in housing ifnance system development and transformation. Instructors are drawn from the Wharton School, UCT Department of Construction Economics and Management, and UCT Department of Finance and Tax, and FinMark Trust’s Centre for Affordable Housing Finance in Africa. In addition, a number of highly qualified industry specialists will participate in the programme.
