HSNC University, Mumbai, has announced a two-year MBA program in real estate, under the aegis of the Niranjan Hiranandani School of Real Estate (NHSRE). This program will cover disciplines like economics, law, management, marketing, finance and engineering, which are integral to real estate. The MBA program aims to provide growth for learners, by offering them first-hand experience in the industry.
While unveiling the management program, Niranjan Hiranandani, provost – HSNC University, stated: “Real estate is one of the fastest-growing sectors that contributes approximately 7% to the GDP of India and employs nearly 15% of the national workforce. Thus, it is crucial for the cohort coming ahead to be well versed with the domain. The program will emphasise on the skill-set that will equip the candidates to not only secure advanced positions as professionals but also allow entrepreneurs to startup and gain confidence of the industry stakeholders, to invest in such early stage businesses. Our associations with leading real estate companies, housing finance companies, private banks, architects, civil and structural engineering firms, top infrastructure companies and regulatory bodies, pan-India will enable internships and apprenticeships during the program and placements on successful completion of the same.”
The curriculum will be set in motion virtually and then, follow a hybrid approach, to allow working students to sustain their prior commitments. Keeping in mind the upcoming trends associating with the sector, a K-A-I (Knowledge & Skills, Application and Industry integration) model has been adopted, to ensure that the time and intelligence invested by learners proves worthwhile. The students will be mentored by industry experts like Deepak Parekh from HDFC, advocate Chetan Kapadia, Boman Irani from Rustomjee Group and so on, added Hiranandani.
