Real estate consulting firm, JLL, and Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies have entered into a strategic partnership to offer a new field of specialisation in Real Estate Consulting & Transaction Services to technology management students.
The course will be co-designed and integrated into the five-year MBA (Tech.) programme at the Mukesh Patel School of Technology Management & Engineering (MPSTME), the technology management school of NMIMS.
Anuj Puri, chairman & country head, JLL India says, “It is essential for candidates, who intend to work in this sector, to possess industry-specific skill sets, which this innovative and highly customized.”
With about 7.8 per cent contribution to India’s GDP, the real-estate sector plays a vital role in driving the Indian economy. It is also the second-largest employment generator in the country, and its increasing prominence is boosting more job opportunities than ever before.
JLL will also extend scholarships and placement assistance to meritorious students emerging successfully from this programme.
Sharad Mhaiskar, dean of MPSTME says, “This co-created management programme will enable our students to differentiate themselves within the industry and assume growth-oriented roles in this sector.”
This corporate-academic initiative is also in line with the incumbent Government’s focus on the Skill India Programme. This programme aims to provide ample opportunities for appropriate training to take advantage of the demographic dividend. This will also plug the gap of high-quality, formal institutional academic programme and pedagogy for the Indian realty sector. Most of these skills have been historically acquired through ‘on-the-job’ learning.
