This subject offers students the opportunity to develop in-depth knowledge of the real estate and construction markets in three major Asian cities through in-depth, on-site case studies led by key property firms, focusing on current complex development projects. The importance of understanding real estate markets from global perspectives is manifested in the fact that real estates are no longer a local business but operate on a global basis. Development of smart cities, intelligence in project development, and globalised real estate investment funding sources are constantly challengeable for today's postgraduate education in real estate. The unique case study approach in this subject ensures students develop a well-rounded and comparative understanding of the property development, planning, and project management challenges and opportunities in the selected most vibrant global cities.

Students travel to several case study locations during a two-week period and complete assignments on their return.
