Property is one of the major asset classes in a diversified investment portfolio and is a crucial component in business operations. Property economists are skilled in the ownership, management, valuation and development of a range of property types. Property economists are experts in optimising the returns and performance of this specialist asset class.
QUT offers one of the few specialised property courses in Australia. Property economics at QUT is concerned with all aspects of property: investment, asset management, development, valuation and research, with a focus on finance and the commercial property market sector. You will gain hands-on, practical experience to supplement your theoretical knowledge. And with an honours degree, you will develop extensive research skills, enabling you to undertake expanded roles in the property sector in the areas of property market analysis, industry research and property trust and funds analysis.
Honours is an ideal pathway for high-achieving graduates to enter the doctoral program (PhD), and provides a wider range of career opportunities, including research, analytic or teaching positions.
Through a combination of research and advanced coursework units, you can pursue specialised studies in particular areas of interest. An honours degree builds on your undergraduate degree studies, providing further depth of knowledge and analytical skills you can apply throughout your career. It offers opportunities to cultivate research and development skills and to work on cutting-edge technology, and provides access to specialist facilities, laboratories, hardware and software.
The Bachelor of Property Economics (Honours) program will allow you to select a current specific property development, valuation or financial and asset management problem or issue and develop the appropriate research skills and methods to address these issues. In line with faculty priorities, this course has a focus on sustainable development and environmental and energy efficiency in all forms of property.
With your advanced leadership and teamwork skills, together with expanded knowledge gained in the honours degree, you will be able to work in a wider range of property-based careers in the private and government property valuation, finance and development sectors.
Careers in property economics may include property valuer and adviser, investment analyst, development manager, property and asset manager, funds manager and positions in corporate real estate. You may work in your own private enterprise or as an employee of property development, valuation, property management, professional services investment or property finance companies. You may also work in government departments and local authorities concerned with rating, compulsory acquisitions, property development or property and portfolio management. Your work will usually combine a mix of office and field work.
The Bachelor of Property Economics has professional accreditation from the Australian Property Institute, the Valuers’ Registration Board of Queensland, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, and the Board of Valuers, Appraisers and Estate Agents Malaysia.
An honours degree can be undertaken in most of the faculty’s study areas. Consult your course coordinator in second or third year to assess what projects may be available within your areas of interest.
