A Master of Science of continuing education is for students or professionals who want to concentrate on a specific area of study. These degrees have a relatively narrow area of focus, so they are often best for people who are already established in their field, and looking to advance.

An MSc in Real Estate differs from an MBA with a focus in real estate. While the second type of degree focuses on the buying and selling of properties, or training skilled and competent real estate agents, the first type provides a more comprehensive overview of the real estate market and related fields. Development, consulting, finance, investments, market analysis, asset management, and research are all covered with an MSc in Real Estate. This gives students a more complete picture of how the real estate market works, and the opportunity to fully understand their product.

There are a number of benefits of getting an MSc in Real Estate. Having a better understanding of the real estate market allows agents to make more informed choices about which properties are likely to increase in value, and where the market is trending. In addition, it also grants a better understanding of why these changes are taking place.

The cost of an MSc in Real Estate varies from institution to institution. However, the degree usually takes between eighteen months and three years to complete, so tuition should be calculated accordingly.

An MSc in Real Estate prepares degree holders for a variety of different jobs in the field of real estate. Graduates can work in large real estate companies, private offices, or businesses that specialize in certain types of real estate, such as commercial properties or multi-family housing.

There are a number of online options available to students around the world who are interested in an MSc in Real Estate. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
