(Boston, Mass.) — The Boston Chapter of the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) and the Boston University Metropolitan College Real Estate Program are pleased to announce their alliance to jointly offer classes in the BOMA education and designation program.

BOMA designations include The Real Property Administrator (RPA), the Facilities Management Administrator (FMA), the Systems Maintenance Administrator (SMA) and the Systems Maintenance Technician (SMT). These designations, which are highly regarded in the real estate industry, are earned through the completion of the BOMA designation curriculum and demonstration of relevant experience. Many companies and government bodies suggest or require BOMA designations for employment or advancement.

The Boston University Program for Real Estate Studies offers a diverse curriculum of classes in Development, Finance, Investment, Appraisal, Management and Marketing/Brokerage as well as a diploma in Real Estate Studies.

Boston University already has a network of industry alliance partners including the Real Estate Finance Association (REFA), the Appraisal Institute and the Institute for Real Estate Management (IREM). The addition of the BOMA curriculum will make the program for Real Estate Studies the region’s most comprehensive and practical source for commercial and corporate real estate education.
