Summary


You study two complementary disciplines both offering you RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) accreditation and a CFA level 1 in Finance. You can either study the programme with the CFA exam or the programme without taking CFA. Both disciplines are highly employable in their own right and both carry professional accreditations for each discipline.

The programme is up-to-date and provides a high level of understanding of both theoretical and numerical material. The university offers you market-leading financial databases (the Thomson-Reuters Eikon suite) to support teaching and individual study. This degree is recognised by the Investment Property Forum (IPF)

Industry Links and Careers


You can take either the CFA
examination for Finance or not, and for Real Estate your degree is recognised by the Investment Property Forum (IPF) plus Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). Careers can be in both areas if you want to manage corporate property investments or either depending upon where you want to live and work in the world. These qualifications are globally useful and relevant.
