BBA in Real Estate Management at iLEAD
With the vision to create smart cities and urbanization, the Indian real estate industry is likely to become one of the fastest growing sectors of the Indian economy. It is also the highest employment generating sector. It has been estimated that to realize government’s development agenda there is a requirement of 7.5 million skilled people in the Real Estate sector by 2022. According to Mercer, world’s biggest H.R. Company, Indian Real Estate sector has offered the highest salary increase during the last four years, even more than IT, despite the current slowdown and recession in this sector of the Indian economy. This industry in India is still struggling to get organized and professionalized due to acute shortage of skilled professionals. The current requirement of core professionals in the sector is estimated to be about 40,000 per annum which is almost impossible to be matched by adequate supply of manpower in any foreseeable future.
Still no Indian universities or colleges offer courses in Real Estate Management, though over 300 universities and colleges in the US have proper Real Estate Management programme. The task of acquiring knowledge on Real Estate is essential to become a successful real estate professional.
