MBA in Real Estate, Construction & Infrastructure comprises of the following study clusters:
Financial markets (Banking, Insurance, Securities markets)
The course presents a top-down overview of macro economic influences on financial market pricing of debt, equity, and foreign exchange. The course develops frameworks to understand the expectations the market is pricing such as from the rate of economic growth/recession, inflation/deflation, country risk and government price intervention in financial markets. These top-down considerations are inputs to asset allocation decisions. We examine how the global market came about and how it has affected financial pricing. Other topics include how debt and equity securities are created and traded; primary and secondary market operations; investment banking and the functions of brokers, dealers and intermediaries.
Regional development and economics
The primary objectives of this course are to: (1) conduct income property investment analyses; (2) develop the technical competence necessary to structure real estate transactions; and (3) understand the financial assets securitized by real estate. The student will analyze income properties using industry standard software. Techniques for structuring real estate transactions examined in this course include lender participations, sale-leasebacks, joint ventures, and real estate syndications. The software used in classes is widely used throughout the real estate industry by equity investors, lenders, commercial brokers, appraisers, and property managers to analyze and manage income-producing (e.g., apartments and commercial) properties. The students will receive instruction on how to use the software during class and/or will be provided with links to tutoring videos.
Real Estate – Finance, Contracts, Investment and Valuation
This course covers areas as intellectual property, antitrust law, negotiation, commercial arbitration, international business, bankruptcy, environmental law, taxation, and product liability law. They complete the remainder of their legal studies with any appropriate general electives chosen from upper-level law courses.
Design Development (project design vs. costs)
Investigates the interrelationship between design decisions and building costs, and the impact of each major building system and building trade on project budgets and schedules. Gives students the opportunity to prepare technical, marketing, and financial packages for investors, as well as regulatory and financial institutions. Culminates with detailed presentations of student-developed project prospectuses.
Students will gain more knowledge of how to deal with the tenants in investment properties (e.g. shopping malls, office blocks, etc.). Course provides essential information and knowhow for the management of real estate property including regulatory issues management. Students will be able to assist private investors with rental property, manage an apartment community, work for residential or commercial property (leasing) firms. This course is also benefitial for early-to-mid career and transitioning facility managers, related-industry practitioners such as architects, designers and safety engineers and facility-related product suppliers and service providers.
Operations and Supply Chain Management
The Supply Chain and Operations Management course focuses on process excellence from both intra-organizational and inter-organizational points of view. Supply chain management manages the flow of goods, and information and services, in order to deliver maximum value to the consumer, while minimizing the costs of the flow. Operations management is responsible for supplying the product or service of the organization and managing the conversion or transformation process that converts inputs into outputs. The design of the major follows the industry-developed SCOR model of Plan—Source—Make—Deliver.
In this course, students discuss the processes, methods, techniques and tools that organizations use to manage their information systems projects. The course covers a systematic methodology for initiating, planning, executing, controlling and closing projects. This course assumes that project management in the modern organization is a complex team-based activity, where various types of technologies (including project management software as well as software to sup- port group collaboration) are an inherent part of the project management process. This course also acknowledges that project management involves both the use of resources from within the firm, as well as contracted from outside the organization.
Strategic and inter-cultural management (incl. negotiating)
The course is divided into several parts: first deals with strategic management of an organization. Second provides a broad overview of cultural anthropology, giving students the tools to understand, speak and write about human diver- sities and similarities cross-culturally. Course materials emphasize issues of race, ethnicity, class and gender, making visible for students the inequalities and power dimensions embedded in societies throughout the globe. Third takes everything into account and discusses various issues that may arise during international (intercultural) business (e.g. during negotiations, contract preparation and its realization, etc.). Students who pass this course will not be afraid to pursue business internationally or interculturally and will not be surprised by various customs of their business partners.
Meetings with professionals | Practice
This is not a course per se. This is a default part of each MBA programme we offer. Meetings are to last at least 2-3 weeks by default and are designed to meet as many interesting people while making contacts in fields students are interested in. Whole two-three weeks of field trips and discussions with managers in specific areas are done to enlarge the network of contacts and gain certain experience from colleagues working in the sectors of interest to the MBA programme participants. As this requires 2-3 weeks of visa stay in the Czech Republic, we allow this can be skipped if a candidate proves that he or she already passed a practice related to studied MBA programme.
