Most courses cater for the twin aspects of real estate management, namely, the physical entity and the financial product.
An MBA with real estate specialism provides students with critical thinking skills coupled with expert knowledge of the institutional structures of the real estate industry.
Many business schools eschew the merits of combining theory with practice usually through expert faculty with real-world experience and targeted case studies based on actual events.
Typical modules might cover:
Real estate finance
Real estate transactions
Real estate capital markets
Creating a real estate business
Societal impacts, sustainability
Real estate portfolio management
Energy and clean technology
Additionally, modules may cover related areas such as law, architecture, public policy and urban planning.
Potential career development opportunites await in areas such as real estate investment trusts, real estate operating companies, developers, financial institutions, investment banks and consulting companies.
