Whether in high school or college, we’re all familiar with school labs. However, the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “lab” is probably not real estate.

However, the new Fairway Commercial Real Estate Lab is changing that for business students at Samford University.

Samford’s Brock School of Business and Fairway Investments have partnered to offer business students a unique learning experience through the new lab and the new real estate concentration that complements any business major.

Courses in the concentration include:

  • Real estate law
  • Professional selling
  • Real estate finance + investment

The new Fairway Commercial Real Estate lab will be the high-tech hub where students get hands-on experience in these topics and beyond.
