MBA in International Real Estate Management


The growing complexity of real estate markets creates increasing challenges for managers in this sector. Managers are subjected to competitive pressure, growing needs on behalf of their clients, as well as complex legal regulations and requirements.

In order to face these challenges, the Real Estate Management MBA provides specific managerial skills in order to be successful in today’s international environment. The MBA’s content covers all the essential functions of management and its multidisciplinary needs.

The approach is twofold: focus is simultaneously placed on the most important practical requirements necessary for executives in the real estate sector, as well as on the skills required for corporate management.

The academic program is characterized by methodological diversity: courses, conferences, exercises and case studies taken from professional examples.

Job prospects for successful graduates are strong, whether in real estate management or investment professions, in France or internationally. More and more countries require that real estate managers be certified, and have a specialized diploma in order to qualify for their profession.

This program is meant for people looking to strengthen and deepen their knowledge and qualification in one of the four following domains:

  • Asset management
  • Property Management
  • Investment expertise and analysis
  • Real Estate Marketing

The diploma obtained after the program is a level-1 certified degree (Fr) and a level-7 certified degree (Eu), registered in the National Registry for Professional Certifications (RNCP). For those wishing to work in France, this diploma qualifies graduates for a professional real estate license
