Bachelor of Property Economics / Bachelor of Arts - International Studies

University of Technology Sydney

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. The combined Bachelor of Property Economics Bachelor of Arts in International Studies provides students specialising in property economics with additional practical skills by providing the opportunity to acquire knowledge and understanding of a language other than English and another culture. 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 within 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. A further two years of study introduce and consolidate the learning of a language and culture other than English.
