Housing for All by 2022 is the national flagship programme in India. The focus on the need for housing in rural and urban India has come to the forefront with a huge housing deficit that needs to be met. Increasingly the financing of affordable housing and creating credit access for affordable housing has become an important agenda for housing finance companies and banks in the country. The need for objective and analytical education in housing finance has thus also become increasingly significant.
Habitat for Humanity and the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania are organising a two day course on housing finance at New Delhi in July 2017. The course is being organised by the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania in association with Habitat for Humanity India, in partnership with National Housing Bank.
The course is an adaptation of Wharton’s International Housing Finance Program at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity’s Terwilliger Center for Innovation in Shelter (TCIS). It addresses the need for education in policy innovations and financial and managerial aspects of housing finance. The workshop is so designed to provide hands-on teaching in the preparation of mortgage securitizations, mortgage bond and hybrid deals.
Joint certificates from the Wharton School and Habitat for Humanity India shall be issued to all participants on completion of the course.
