Course Summary

Gain the theoretical and practical skills you need to embark on a fulfilling career in real estate and finance.


Who is it for?

A Bayes master's degree is your gateway to a real estate career.

Four key features make us market leaders in Real Estate master's programmes:

Track record: Established 22 years ago, and accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), our degrees are widely recognised and highly valued by major employers; you will find Bayes Real Estate graduates at all levels in leading real estate firms around the world.

Capability: You will be taught by highly qualified real estate staff, all all with at least 15 years’ experience in teaching and/or in senior roles in the real estate industry and active in research. And we draw on London’s unmatched pool of industry professionals to act as visiting lecturers and guest speakers.

Focus: Bayes only offers Real Estate courses on a postgraduate level - so you have the exclusive attention of our staff - and has specialised in courses which blend the professional, financial and practical skills in high demand across the real estate industry.

Location: we are the only Business School to offer real estate investment programmes in London, with the opportunity to network in a global real estate hub, neighbouring both the City’s financial core and the new tech belt centred on Silicon Roundabout.

Career pathways

Graduates from the MSc Real Estate Investment go into a wide spread of firms and roles - some into the graduate entry schemes of the chartered surveyors in the UK or abroad. Most are best suited to analyst, strategy or research positions major fund management houses and investment banks, or smaller private-equity type real estate funds, rating agencies and specialist research firms. Many will go on to professional qualifications outside real estate, such as Chartered Financial Analyst Institute.


We begin with the foundations of financial principles and mathematics which apply across all asset classes. You then learn how those techniques are used in cash flow modelling, valuation and investment decisions for real estate investments and developments, both in the UK and around the world. Since real estate is often financed with debt, you will apply financial modelling to understand how senior, junior, equity and mezzanine debt affect returns and risks.
