Real Estate is about land, building and valuations.
Students will get the knowledge and skills necessary to become a property expert and a successful person in the Real Estate field.
One might not be aware, due to its complexity in financial planning and procedures involved, that real estate management has developed into a highly specialised profession and graduates in this field of study are greatly sought after by various industries, including the construction and banking industries.
Who should study Real Estate?
Many students are not aware of the option to pursue a degree in real estate management. Most would go for the familiar programmes without realising that this programme is also an academic degree worth pursuing.
Students with great interest in planning, mathematics and good in observation should take up the challenge to be a player in real estate management.
This is a field that could provide you endless opportunities for advancement.
Why pursuing this course is a smart choice?
While not everyone is pursuing a degree in real estate studies, it is very likely that many of us will acquire at least one investment property at some time in our lives. By doing so, we effectively become a property manager, whether we intend to or not.
Property management is also a career option, either by working for a property management company, real estate firm, or acting as a sole proprietor.
What will I learn?
In general, you will study a multitude of subjects that will help you engage in property valuation, property management and acquiring and selling of properties.
You will be exposed to the basics of business management, applied valuation, plant and machinery valuation, property development, building services, real estate agency practice, land economics, property laws and other property-related subjects.
What should I expect?
The programme includes a six-month industrial training. Most internships for a degree programme are only limited to three months but for this programme, the internship is extended to enable students to learn more from the industry.
The internship will expose students to a lot of things such as site visits, field work, evaluations and more. This is the time for students to make full use of what they have learned in the classroom as it is the best way for students to acquire first-hand experience of this industry.
