An overview:

Planning, financing, developing and marketing a real estate project is a complicated process. Creating not one but multiple interlocking projects simultaneously over a large time span makes it even more difficult. Doing this in a rapidly developing country adds a final layer of complexity. Special challenges arise and these need to be addressed without as much information being available as in a more developed country. This course will show the various aspects associated with planning, financing, developing and marketing a new city, Kopri, near Mumbai, India. Students will learn about special challenges and are expected to find solutions. Thus critical thinking and creativity, besides theoretical knowledge and practical skills, are needed.
