Real Estate is increasingly becoming an established discipline in Botswana and the region, as infrastructural development progressively becomes national priority. However, training in Real Estate has not had the attention it deserves to match the skills requirements of developments in the sector. Until recently, for example, Botswana has not had any formal real estate academic programme offered locally. This programme is designed to fill this gap and will provide an opportunity to undertake complementary modules that are relevant in every work – related environment, along with studies in real estate, making the graduate highly flexible in terms of job placement. The programme will offer industry qualified professionals with knowledge of theory and practice of the real estate industry and general business, both at local and international level. This qualification is designed to produce highly qualified property professionals who are able to enter the workforce recognized by employers, government and professional organizations.
