The aim of the Real Estate Development Master’s Degree Program is to provide education in a way that enables real estate investments, which constitute an important part of economic investments, to be evaluated within the economic interests of both the investor and the country. The rapid urbanization in our country which will continue in the following years creates a very dynamic real estate market in our cities. This increases the importance of the subject and the need for qualified personnel in the market. Therefore, this program offers graduate education in real estate finance, marketing, valuation and law to people who are trained in different disciplines such as urbanism, architecture, engineering, business and economics.
