Property Development and Valuation

Bachelor of Commerce - BCom(Curtin) - MJRU-PROPV

Curtin Business School

Property is functional space from a family home to a block of units, a suit of offices, a rural retreat or a skyscraper. Whatever the shape, size or style, there are property professionals involved at all stages of property development. The property field is broad, offering many areas of specialisation such as:

 

  • Property and facilities management
  • Property economics
  • Property investment and analysis
  • Acquisitions, sales and leasing
  • Property finance, development and valuation.

 

It is suited to people who are interested in residential and commercial property, enjoy networking and want to work in a varied, dynamic and international profession. Careers in property may be in roles such as commercial property manager, real estate broker, property valuer, real estate analyst, property developer or roles in property investment and finance.

  • economics

In your final year as a Property Valuations student, you will be assigned to a fully API-qualified mentor from a pool of real estate professionals in Western Australia for a three-week practical placement.
