Why study Real Estate?

Real estate is a significant source of value creation to the economy; in fact, real estate, rentals and leasing rank as the number two contributor to Quebec and Canada’s gross domestic product. Getting into the real estate market, whether you’re buying property for personal use or for investment purposes requires an understanding of financing, regulations, and markets.

Your study of real estate will include looking at economics, urban planning, and public policy, among other topics. Students who add this minor to their business program may pursue career opportunities in real estate development, consulting, valuation, leasing, financing, brokerage, and property management.
