The 2019 MSRE International Real Estate Study Tour course will travel to the historically rich city of London, England. This program is intended for inquisitive minds seeking intensive progression in advanced real estate development. Designed in two parts, students in the program will have the opportunity to work with peers from UNC Charlotte as well Kingston University. Together, students will compare the development process in the United Kingdom versus the United States.
In London, one of the world's oldest and greatest cities, scholars will visit with developers, city planners, and appraisers to understand the dynamics of the British real estate market and how it is changing in the face of the pending British withdrawal from the E.U. Students will also tour London's greatest sights, such as Big Ben, the London Eye, Buckingham Palace, and the British Museum.
This course offers a unique opportunity to learn directly from one of the world's most advanced and competitive environments. The course is required for MSRE students, but is an optional course for students in the Certificate, MBA and other graduate programs in the Belk College of Business.
Locations visited in the past include Capte Town, Istanbul, Bangkok, Ho Chi Mihn, Hong Kong, Rio de Janeiro, Moscow, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai, Berlin and Barcelona.
