The Property Economics course educates students for professional careers in commercial property investment and development i.e. retail (shopping), office and industrial. It is also suitable for those interested in property development, town planning and the general investment market.
The programme seeks to develop the core disciplines required for the professional education of a property economist or a property asset manager.
It particularly emphasises Property Valuations, which together with the other core modules of Economics, Planning and Investment Analysis gives the Property Economics programme its orientation. For the Property Asset Management & Valuation option in final year, the emphasis is changed somewhat to concentrate on property Asset Management, Housing Studies and Valuation.
Property Valuation is a skill based on the application of economic and financial evaluation techniques to land and buildings. The educational approach seeks to develop in the student the ability to evaluate and integrate information from diverse sources to arrive at a conclusion. This is a distinctive characteristic skill of the valuer.
