Course profile

The CUHK MSc in Management of Real Estate and Hospitality Assets Program (formerly known as MSc in Hospitality and Real Estate Management) delivers world class and state of the art knowledge in global real estate and hospitality assets. The program of study is based in Hong Kong leveraging the locational advantage of Hong Kong as a leader of the real estate and hospitality industries in Asia.

The real estate industry is an important pillar of the economies in Asia. The hospitality industry is one of the largest and fastest growing industries in China and Asia. As the economies in Asia grow, the real estate industries in these economies also grow in prominence. The hospitality industry in turn, is associated with real estate development, including hotels, serviced apartments, resorts, spas, theme parks, timeshares, shopping centers, airports, gaming, casinos and other entertainment venues.

In addition to the high quality standardized courses, this practitioner-oriented program will specifically teach you how to analyze and execute investment propositions in the real estate and hospitality industries given the rapidly changing institutional and economic environment in Hong Kong, Mainland China and Asia. This program is suited to students who intend to pursue a management career in senior positions in the real estate, hospitality, investment banking and strategic consulting industries.  The program is taught by the faculty members of the School of Hotel and Tourism Management of CUHK in conjunction with experienced and leading industry practitioners. Our mission is to nurture a new generation of thinkers and leaders to compliment the continued growth of the real estate and hospitality industries on a global scale.
