Course summary

This degree is designed for those looking to specialise in global property investment, finance and business. With a focus on real estate markets and institutions, you’ll develop the competencies necessary to work on both the advisory side and client side for investors. Through applied projects, site visits and visiting industry experts, we’ll equip you with the knowledge of international property markets, finance, valuation, appraisal, real estate economics and real estate management and agency.
