Property is a diverse and exciting industry offering many types of jobs and challenges. Investing in property assets is central to this industry and many employers seek employees who have specialist knowledge of property markets and assets.
Such knowledge is vital when developing and managing investment portfolios and, on a personal level, understanding property markets can help you on your own property ownership and investment journey.
In this specialisation you will learn how housing and commercial property markets operate, analyse property investments, assess returns and understand how property is financed. These skills are equally important in the public and private sectors.
This specialisation differs from the property-based majors as it is specifically designed for students from other disciplines who want to gain an understanding of property as an investment class. It incorporates project-based work, for example assessing potential returns from specific property assets, and draws on industry case studies. You will also have the opportunity to engage directly with industry.
