Goizueta Real Estate Group (GREG)


Professor Roy T. Black joined the Goizueta Business School faculty full-time in Summer 2007 to spearhead the Real Estate program. During his tenure at Goizueta, Black has seen his typical class size of 30 students and his load of one or two courses a year swell to the establishment of a program. As the Real Estate program grew here at Emory, the program became centered in the Finance department.
