Real Estate Investment Finance: the Network Seminars

The first of the Real Estate Investment Finance Network Seminars took place in Hong Kong and Singapore on 23 and 26 April 2015 and were hosted by Professor Joe Tah (REC Head of Department) and Ye Xu (Subject Coordinator for REIF). The Network Seminars are an integral part of the MSc and Postgraduate Diploma in Real Estate Investment Finance (REIF) - our new online, distance-learning programmes which started in March 2015.

The purpose of the Network Seminars? 
The Network Seminars are intended to bring together all students who are taking one of our REIF programmes - the new MSc and Postgraduate Diploma REIF and also CREIF (Certificate of Real Estate Investment Finance), for some face-to-face discussions and networking. They offer students the opportunity to discuss the topics they are studying and also to investigate and discuss wider issues and their impact within the industry. The fact that our students are based in a variety of locations means that these sessions allow students and presenters to share their knowledge and experiences of the industry across country as well as professional boundaries.
