The MSc Asset Management and Development is aimed at individuals with a background or qualification in Built Environment disciplines but who wish to develop their skill sets in property asset management and development. It has been accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
The course will be of particular benefit if you are interested in entering the regeneration profession, while also providing the core skills needed by general practitioners. You will get involved in case studies and field trips that may include an international visit (for the past three years students have travelled to Shanghai, China), though you will be expected to make a financial contribution towards the cost of any international trip.
