Expand your career potential

The property sector is Australia’s largest industry and second largest employer. Fulfilling the residential and non-residential needs of Australia continues to remain a priority and requires employers to hire graduates with the capabilities and skills to work in a dynamic and unpredictable market. Now more than ever, graduates must combine their knowledge and skills with the advancements in technology to remain competitive.

Prepare yourself with knowledge and technical skills for a career within global property related industries and professions. The Master of Valuation and Property Development ensures graduates can demonstrate an integrated understanding of the complex body of property knowledge and skills in this field.

Intensive mode delivery

The Master of Valuation and Property Development is professionally recognised by some of Australia’s leading professional bodies. This allows graduates to differentiate themselves within the industry.

Further, the program is also delivered in intensive mode. Intensive Mode Delivery is a compact and time efficient way to complete a postgraduate qualification with minimal impact on professional and personal lifestyles. Subjects are generally delivered over two weekends during the semester with two sets of three-day sessions per subject, usually scheduled as Thursday to Saturday (approximately six to eight contact hours per day) with a break of four or five weeks between session one and session two of each subject.

Participants will receive 40 hours of combined lectures, discussion groups, case studies and workshops during contact hours. International students are required to be on campus every week.

Testimonials

"The thing I liked most about studying at Bond was the overall learning environment. Having smaller class sizes meant that you pretty much got to know everyone on a personal level. Lecturers and teaching staff were readily available and always provided prompt critical feedback in regard to assignments and study programs.Bond to me was a personal experience, you didn’t feel like just another ‘number’. Teaching staff were hands on and prepared to offer extra time for discussion when required. I would definitely recommend studying at Bond, I would even consider going back and trying my hand with something new if time permitted.  Show more

"The thing I liked most about studying at Bond was the overall learning environment. Having smaller class sizes meant that you pretty much got to know everyone on a personal level.

Teaching staff were hands on and prepared to offer extra time for discussion when required. I would definitely recommend studying at Bond, I would even consider going back and trying my hand with something new if time permitted. 

I studied a Master of Business Administration and a Master of Property Valuation. When I started studying I was around 35, and my work experience was predominantly property based so it was a simple decision to expand my skill set and re-educate myself in this field. I’m a Gold Coast resident with a young family so relocating wasn’t an option. I’d also tried online delivery and really missed the face to face contact not only with staff but also with like-minded professionals/students.

It wasn’t the reputation of the programs that drew me to Bond, it was the overall reputation of the university – Bond itself was the selling point. The intensive delivery allowed me to continue full time work and study multiple subjects per semester, and having three semesters per year meant I was able to complete studies quicker even while studying on a part time basis. During my study,

I met some really amazing like-minded people, people I still keep in contact with today. Both the programs I studied were completely different, the property valuation was industry specific so students all had similar professional backgrounds with different levels of experience, within different sized organisations. The MBA was amazing – class discussions themselves were a highlight as students from very diverse industries both domestically and internationally applied learnings into the practice of their organisation.

My current employment is a family business; however, the MBA has provided me with the knowledge and confidence to work on and develop a couple side projects which are ‘slowly’ in the pipeline. Definitely opened my mind to industry opportunities and how small ideas can better a work environment. My studies allowed me to critically analysis our current business model and how it can be improved." Show less
