The Property major equips you with the expert skills to create a career as a property specialist. You will be prepared to succeed in a range of roles in the property industry, including careers in valuation, property investment, property funds management, property development and commercial property management. The practical Property major subjects focus on property investment, valuation, property development and property management, with opportunities for engagement with industry, dependent on availability. If you are seeking professional accreditation, you will also undertake specialised professional subjects. The core subjects in the Bachelor of Business will provide you with a foundation of business knowledge and develop your skills in innovation, career planning, and numeracy. The Property major builds on this knowledge and skills in an applied discipline based context. Property specialists work for institutional investors with multi-billion dollar commercial property portfolios, major property companies, valuation firms and leading property advisory companies, both in Australia and overseas. The Bachelor of Business (Property) is accredited by the Australian Property Institute (API) and depending on electives chosen, students may be eligible for API Certified Practising Valuer (CPV) certification. Students, depending on chosen electives, are also eligible for API certifications of Certified Property Practitioner, Certified Property Manager, Certified Funds Manager, Certified Asset Manager and Certified Development Practitioner. Details of which subjects must be completed to meet these requirements can be found via the link located on the Bachelor of Business page. This major is available on-campus in full time and part time modes or by distance. Please contact the Property major Academic Program Advisor for information on the distance mode offering.
