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.

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

in 2 years.

innovation and strategic planning is the 18 month Master of Management
