In the Implementation of the National Real Estate Plan RERA and The University of Bahrain recently joined forces to explore innovative ways to improve the output of their Master's program in Real Estate Development
RERA and the University of Bahrain emphasized the importance of coordination and cooperation concerning the professional certificates offered by RERA and how to link them to the curriculum provided by the University of Bahrain in a manner commensurate with the Master of "Real Estate Development and Property Management program" to present them with the best and latest international practices in the field. This came during the meeting held between RERA and the College of Business at the University of Bahrain.
In this regard, Dr. Hamad Hazeem, Director of the Information and Real Estate Development Department, stressed the authority's direction to cooperate with educational institutions and academic cadres and to issue specialized scientific research that contributes to the development of the real estate sector in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
Two academic researchers from the master's program in real estate development and property management were reviewed. The accreditation of the Master's program outputs has also been studied to be one of the steps for graduate students to obtain the necessary license for practicing real estate professions that RERA licenses.
This cooperation comes in implementing the provisions of the National Real Estate Sector Plan (2021-2024) regarding implementing the leadership pillar in innovating real estate services and providing accurate, updated, and reliable information. For his part, Dr. Ammar Barham, assistant professor at the College of Business Administration, stressed the importance of opening horizons of cooperation between the two sides, intending to prepare research projects in the real estate field and linking the outputs of the educational system to the requirements of the real estate market in the Kingdom of Bahrain, including linking professional certificates to the curricula offered in the academic system. This step comes as a continuation of the previous visits and meetings and what was previously agreed upon to offer scientific programs for Master's students.
