Qualifications in Property & Real Estate and Strategic Foresight – Modern economies demand unique skills.

The globalised world of today has opened a number of career options for graduates in some of the fastest growing countries globally. As a result, international students are increasingly seeking to study unique courses that prepare them to work in such emerging professions. As a result Australian universities have designed specialist courses to cater for the demand from the international students for such qualifications. Today I will discuss two such offerings from leading Australian universities.

The first course I would like to introduce to you is a 3 year Bachelor degree in Property & Real Estate offered by Deakin University in Melbourne. It is a one of its kind course in Victoria and provides its graduates knowledge and skills in Property development, valuation and property economics. Property development and investing are growing exponentially due to record property prices and an ever increasing army of private property investors. Property prices are expected to continue to rise in Asia as the population expands and becomes more prosperous.  As a result graduates of this course can flourish in careers including property development, property advisor, market research analyst, property sales and acquisitions and numerous other professions. 

The course is professionally recognised throughout the world and is accredited by the Australian Property Institute and the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. Graduates of this course can also register as a Certified Practising Valuer.  The course can be completed in 3 years with normal load or be fast tracked and completed in 2 years.

The second interesting course that addresses the needs of innovation and strategic planning is the 18 month Master of Management (Strategic Foresight) offered by Swinburne University. In today’s complex world that challenges its managers to constantly innovate and strategise to stay ahead of its competition, this course equips its graduates with a sound foundation of successful practice of strategic foresight in a diverse range of fields.

Graduates of this course are well placed for a successful career in foresight and strategic planning with niche consulting firms focusing on strategy and sustainability. Policy Analyst, Sustainability Advisor, Foresight Manager, Strategy Development, Marketing and Trend Spotting, Security and Risk Assessment, Business Consulting, CEO are some of possible career outcomes. Graduates may be eligible for membership of the Association of Professional Futurists and the World of Futures Studies Federation (WFSF). Graduates can exit at the Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma or Master level.

Both the above courses are aimed at acquiring the necessary knowledge and skills at a professional level to succeed in the new economies of the modern world.
