This will result in extended basic knowledge in the principles and practices of property investment, development, marketing and management and also in building professional networks and relationships.
An experienced UCT GSB faculty – supplemented by national and international instructors – will provide a strong base in strategic thinking, negotiation, financial management, economics and presentation skills.
