Master's programme in Real Estate and Construction Management
The programme prepares graduates for the different occupations related to the real estate, government and construction management sectors. Our hands-on approach to teaching and learning implies that our class projects consist of activities that will provide students with job related skills. Our close links with industry, local professional bodies and a strong alumni network allows us to stay abreast with current developments in the business and integrate this into our programmes.
Given the borderless nature of the subjects covered in the programme, graduates are trained for careers in the real estate, government and construction management sectors nationally and internationally. Career options for graduates cover various areas within the fields of valuation, real estate taxation, real estate management, property/facilities management and development, construction and project management, planning-, building- and environmental law, real estate law, and land administration.
Graduates can expect to work in organisations such as:
- Advisory firms, banks, pension funds, insurance companies
- Property and asset management companies, development companies, real estate appraisal/valuation firms, and real estate capital groups
- Infrastructural development organisations
- Land registration and cadastral agencies and other related regulatory bodies
- Architectural firms, technical consultant firms, construction management firms, real estate companies, construction companies, client and facilities management organisations and public organisations.
The programme also prepares students for PhD-studies.
The curriculum of the programme covers four terms of full time studies. Within the programme it is possible to specialize in: Construction Project Management, Real Estate Development and Land Law or Building and Real Estate Economics. Some of the courses in Real Estate Development and Land Law are taught in Swedish.
The first semester consists mainly of foundation courses for all students within the programme. After the first semester it is possible to specialize according to educational background and interest. In the final semester, students will write a degree project.
The student will carry out an in-depth study on a subject area within the scope of the programme. This gives the opportunity to apply the knowledge acquired from the courses in a scientific manner to a problem chosen within the research profile of the track. The Degree project may be carried out at a company in Sweden or abroad. Students may also work independently in an area of their own choice, as long as it falls within the research profile of the track. The Degree project will be presented in a seminar.
