  • To train entrepreneurially-minded urban planners who are attractive to the labour market with their in-depth knowledge of construction project management, real estate economics and land law. Students are trained to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries, work independently, exercise their own power of initiative and create new ideas for a sustainable built environment.
  • To prepare students for PhD studies.

Knowledge and understanding

Students are expected to develop and deepen their knowledge of real estate economics, land law and construction project management to prepare them for professional roles in the real estate and construction management sectors.

Skills and abilities

  • We expect our graduates to be competent in applying disciplinary knowledge to practical situations.
  • We also expect our graduates to be highly proficient in systematically acquiring new knowledge and insights in the fields of real estate and construction management.
  • To achieve this, they should be able to implement theories and concepts that are relevant to the field while adopting a critical approach.
  • In addition, the graduates should be able to cooperate both in national and international multi-disciplinary teams, and communicate effectively, orally and in writing.
  • Through seminars, case studies and project assignments we train our graduates to develop their powers of independent analysis, reasoning and reflection, and to train their powers of analytical decision-making.
  • They should also be able to complete demanding projects inside given time frames.

Ability to make judgments and adopt a standpoint

  • After completing the programme, the students should be able to reason, reflect over and make well-balanced assessments on issues related to the field, while taking ethical aspects into account. In particular we aim to train graduates to independently search for the information required to arrive at reasonable conclusions on a variety of issues.

The students should be aware of and understand the consequences of how decisions and the implementation of disciplinary knowledge can contribute to the development of social, economic and ecologically sustainable built environments.
