Drawing on the wide range of building and real estate subjects on offer, the programme provides broad based and interdisciplinary education in the context of property and housing management, and facilities and real estate asset management. Graduates are all-rounders who can understand and work with the interplay between social, economic, political, legal, technological and commercial issues and problems.
