MSc Real Estate Economics and Finance

About the MSc programme 

This master’s integrates current academic economic and financial analysis and research with an applied study of real estate markets and finance. The programme has an international focus that is transferable across countries and institutional settings. You will acquire significant theoretical and technical knowledge to equip you to understand urban economic processes, price determination in land and real property markets, and their interrelation with investment markets, investment analysis and portfolio choice as well as the impact of regulations, transport, public policy and socio-economic change. This programme will appeal if you wish to work, or are already working, in a specialised area relating to property and urban analysis, real estate finance or investment analysis.

The programme benefits from a partnership with the Investment Property Forum (IPF), which has included the programme on their selected list of graduate courses it judges provide the relevant skills necessary for those operating in the property investment market. This recognition comes with a number of benefits for our master's graduates, including fast-track membership to the forum. In addition, the programme has an agreement with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), thus conferring professional recognition.
