MSc in Management of Real Estate & Hospitality Assets

Steer the future of Asian economies

As the only master’s degree in Asia to integrate real estate and hospitality asset management with a business focus, this programme equips you with solid knowledge and skills in real estate development, asset management, market analysis, financing, valuation, and investment.

The real estate industry plays an important role in the Asian economy and the global economy. This dynamic and complex industry offers a broad range of career opportunities in areas such as property planning, development, financing, investment, valuation, asset management, facilities management, leasing, marketing, and consultancy. Commercial and residential properties are the most significant real estate assets. While hospitality-related properties (e.g. hotels, shopping centres and other entertainment venues) constitute a valuable part of commercial real estate, these assets have gained increasing strategic importance in many developers’ portfolios in recent years.

This programme is professionally accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
