Graduates will have comprehensive knowledge and skills related to the entire real estate lifecycle, from planning, through investment implementation, use (management) and disposal of real estate. This specialist knowledge will apply to properties of various uses, including residential, commercial, office, warehouse, hotel and undeveloped land.

Given that the profession of property manager no longer requires a professional licence, the importance of the postgraduate certificate in this area has increased. It is now an important proof of qualifications and knowledge required to practice this attractive and responsible profession.

The studies last for two semesters and are dedicated to people with higher education, who are or intend to be involved in real estate management or development projects.

Recruitment is open until September 30, 2021, and takes place via the Online Registration of Candidates (IRK) for Postgraduate Studies.
