The programme is designed to prepare you for a career in global real estate finance and investment management. It provides participants with the key quantitative and conceptual skills needed to make the complex decisions required in the real estate finance sector. It also places property investment into context with equity, fixed income and financial derivative products. This programme is accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and recognised by the Institute of Financial Planning (IFP). It is also recognised by the Investment Property Forum, facilitating fast-track membership. The Real Estate Finance programme is particularly suited to graduates with a degree in a quantitative discipline who wish to develop specialist finance skills that can be used in the real estate sector. This programme not only examines investment in the underlying real estate sector but also provides extensive coverage of Real Estate Investment Trusts, Real Estate Funding, Mortgage Backed Securities and Real Estate Portfolio Management. This programme is offered jointly with our specialist finance faculty at Henley Business School, the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) Centre.
