For students who have thought about a career in business, economics or property, the Bachelor of Property Economics provides the edge to get started in a global industry. In this degree students learn the specialist knowledge required to enter the property sector, with skills in property valuation, market analysis, investment and development. Their skill set is just as relevant locally as it is internationally. This degree covers economic, legal and financial disciplines, giving students the flexibility to pursue a variety of career paths. This business knowledge is also transferable, providing options for a transition to other sectors as careers develop. UTS graduates are highly sought after and have excellent starting salaries: the property industry actively recruits property economics students. Most students are working in the industry by their third year of study. This job-readiness results from UTS's industry connections: the curriculum was developed in consultation with industry, guest lecturers come from industry, and students work with real-world projects such as Barangaroo, Central Park and Green Square. The degree structures classes so that students do a mixture of individual and team-based work, mixing theory and practice. This means graduates seamlessly fit into team-based, workplace environments.
The course comprises a total of 144 credit points. In addition to attending classes, students are encouraged to gain practical experience in appropriate professional or industrial organisations. Full-time students undertake practical studies as part of the program included in core subjects.
