The Real Estate sector in India has witnessed a paradigm shift. With the renewed regulations and incentive schemes, India is moving towards a mature real estate market. With the sector spreading its wings across the urban and rural landscape of India, and the government taking several initiatives to strengthen the real estate and infrastructure sectors, the demand for adept real estate professionals has never been so high. MBA Real Estate Management is one of the recent initiatives of NMIMS. The program intends on creating managers and leaders who understand the sector, its dynamicity and complexity.

Why MBA Real Estate Management?

The school provides access to a strategic mix of industry experts and in-house faculties across the domains of real estate, finance, marketing, operations, strategy, technology management, civil, mechanical, electrical, and other management and engineering disciplines which are essential to gain holistic knowledge.
