Dubai Real Estate Institute (DREI), the educational arm of Dubai Land Department (DLD), has announced the launch of a second edition of its real estate master’s programme for 2017. The launch of the new course follows the overwhelming success of the first edition, which was organised in cooperation with the University of Salford, UK, and will award a number of students with master’s degrees.
Registration is open until 17th August for anyone wishing to participate in the programme and pursue higher education. The candidates who meet the entry requirements for this outstanding academic programme will commence their studies in September.
Mahmoud El Burai, Executive Director at the Dubai Real Estate Institute (DREI), the educational arm of DLD, commented: “The success of the first edition of the programme is thanks to its specialised and comprehensive curriculum, which gives participants a solid grounding in how to deal with the various administrative challenges faced by employees in this sector. The programme provides academic expertise and theoretical knowledge that is highly specialised to the real estate market.”
The programme was the result of extensive discussions that took place recently in Dubai and involved senior executives from DLD and DREI, as well as delegates from the University of Salford. Both parties discussed future opportunities for cooperation and the development of further academic programmes for students in the United Arab Emirates and other GCC countries. These collaborative efforts will help DREI to enhance its presence and strengthen its regional growth.
The programme is the first opportunity offered by DREI to students interested in completing their postgraduate studies and obtaining a master’s degree in real estate from a prestigious international university. It is part of DREI’s ongoing efforts to provide educational programmes that help students to obtain globally recognised academic qualifications.
The curriculum is focused on the mechanisms of commercial real estate and the sector’s relationship with both local and global financial and investment markets. The programme lasted for three semesters in the credit hours system and included the advanced IT courses required for this industry, as well as advanced legal, economic, and technical models that help students to develop investment and evaluation plans.
