For Immediate Release

The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo College of Business and Economics is launching a new suite of live, online executive programs to help business leaders meet the challenges of the post-pandemic world.

The mission of CoBE’s Executive Programs is to bring world-class knowledge and coaching to Hawaiʻi Island, and to disseminate it to the world. The live, online format enables international networking and relationship building.

“This is a crucial time for business leaders to hone their skills and build their networks,” noted Emmeline de Pillis, interim dean of the College of Business and Economics. “It’s not just a matter of getting ready for what’s coming next. Business leaders will be shaping the post-pandemic world and defining what the ‘new normal’ will be. Our executive programs equip leaders for success in this uncharted area.”

“The real estate environment is especially interesting right now,” she added. “Mortgage interest rates are at record lows, and companies are rethinking how they use office space.”

In light of this, the first course offered is Real Estate Investment, led by Kelly Moran, Certified Commercial Investment Member and Certified International Property Specialist, and founder and CEO of Hilo Brokers. The class runs Thursdays, January 11-May 14, 2021, from 5:00-7:30 p.m. Sessions are online. Participants will receive a certificate upon completion.

Moran brings together real estate experts to discuss legal, physical, and economic aspects of real estate and investment. The course will cover valuation, market analysis, and the role of public and private externalities affecting the allocation and utilization of real estate resources. This is a COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning) course and provides interactive, virtual, international engagement in a structured setting. Participants will engage with participants from around the world, work on intercultural teams and collaborate on real world projects.

Participants can see upcoming sessions and register online at business.uhh.hawaii.edu/executive-education/.
