in Real Estate Management
The real estate industry, the “engine of the economy”, is characterized by huge local and international transactions in the order of hundreds of thousands to hundreds of millions of dollars. Activities in the real estate market combine a broad range of areas, including entrepreneurship, law, economics, finance, appraisal and valuation, engineering, planning, and marketing. The real estate industry offers substantial business opportunities, and succeeding in it is based on a deep understanding of the various areas of real estate, as well as business cycles, risk management, regulation, politics and more.
In the real estate specialization, emphasis is placed on integrating scientific thinking and practical experience in the real estate business world. Among the lecturers in the specialization are renowned real estate researchers and senior managers and entrepreneurs from the industry. The range of courses endows students with tools for analyzing and understanding the micro level activities of the players in the market (entrepreneurs, managers, clients, banks and so on) and the macro level, that is, interactions among the sub-markets of the real estate field, as well as interactions among the real estate markets and the other branches of the economy. In addition, students become acquainted with the sub-sectors of the market such as residential real estate, office, retail, and industrial real estate– in Israel and throughout the world.
