Finance and Real Estate


Finance is the branch of business concerned with management of money. The specific nature of the money management function depends on the type of organization, to some extent. Based on similarity of the finance function, finance is generally classified into three areas: corporate finance, investments and securities, and financial institutions.

The discipline of real estate draws upon concepts from economics, statistics, and mathematics in order to help managers make sound financial decisions. In the area of real estate, these decisions revolve around real estate development and financing.
