Business Economics: Real Estate Finance (track)

The Master (MSc) in Business Economics at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) teaches you how to make the right organisational and financial decisions for organisations. It is a specialised programme for students who have a background in business economics and want to focus on organisational and financing issues, using a quantitative and analytical approach.

Please note: Depending on acquiring formal accreditation, the UvA will be offering a new MSc in Finance as of September 2016, including 4 specialisations: Asset Management, Banking & Regulation, Corporate Finance and Real Estate Finance. We expect some changes will be made in the curriculum that are not directly related to the change in the programme name. You will be informed about these changes in due time. Managerial Economics and Strategy remains a specialisation in the MSc in Business Economics.

The Real Estate Finance track of the Business Economics Master's programme provides you with the broad range of skills, the in-depth knowledge and the international expertise that you will need to start off your career in this specialist discipline with a definite advantage. Learn everything there is know about the financial and commercial aspects of commercial real estate, its development, financing and operations.

  • Prepare for a career in the business world or public sector;
  • benefit from studying in a graduate school with major strengths in Business Administration and Economics and Econometrics;
  • follow one of our specialised tracks and become a financial expert, a leading consultant in economic performance, or a specialist in real estate finance.
