CORE-GP 1021, Financial Management, is a prerequisite for all Schack courses, and URPL-GP 2639, Real Estate Finance, is a prerequisite for most Schack courses.  The Seminar in Community Development (REAL1-GC 3400) requires an application process, which is usually announced at information sessions held in late spring/early summer for the fall term.
