About your Experience
Property in global context NYProgram details
  • Tour Leader: Judith Callanan and Callum Logan
  • Program Dates: 17– 30 June 2018
  • Availability: 24 places
This is an intensive course which focuses on developing your knowledge of Property Development, Valuation, Investment and Management within a global context.  The learning experiences in this course will enable you to contextualise the nature of Australian Property environment and businesses practices within global contexts. You will visit a number of different international regions to provide you with first hand insight and exposure to global real estate practices.

Property ownership, development, investment and management functions are no longer contained in local markets with property companies increasingly operating in a global environment. This course, which includes a study tour, will explore the application of local property practices within the context of property as a global asset, including inspections of different real estate markets, different market segments and from different perspectives (development, investment and valuation).

In doing so, you will develop your knowledge of best practice.  You will investigate and reflect on the complexities and issues associated with working as a property professional in the global market as well as foster your knowledge about land economics, property asset management, development, investment and valuation. 

The study tour component may take the form of onsite activities, presentations from local professionals, and site visits and will provide you with opportunities to create and expand your global network to further enhance your career options.
