The MSc Real Estate Management course and the real estate market

“The real estate sector represents a significant weight in the French and global economy. The total expenditure on housing is estimated today at 15% of the Gross Domestic Product.

Over the last 5 years, thanks in particular to exceptionally low bank rates and an increase in demand, the property market has never been in such good shape, employing more than 230,000 people, with an estimated recruitment need of 3,000 executives per year excluding construction.

The MSc Real Estate Management is built to train executives who are able to fill these roles and adapt to these perpetual changes.”

Thierry Lauret, Program Director
