Essential Commercial Property Programme (ECPP)

Why study Essential Commercial Property Programme (ECPP)?

At its broadest level, land and property management is about the built environment; offices, shops, industrial buildings, houses and the surrounding countryside all have an impact on the quality of our lives. This programme explores the issues around the creation, management and enhancement of the world’s physical assets – everything from forests and country estates to city office blocks and major regeneration projects. As with any qualification you will develop skills such as problem solving and critical thinking. Alongside these you will also develop your transferable skills such as report writing, team work and making presentations; all very important for the property professions.  You will also gain more specialised technical skills relevant to industry such as property valuation and appraisal.

This programme has been structured to provide a learning opportunity for persons in the property industry/built environment as well as for other stakeholders such as public sector employees. This learning opportunity is of value for persons with some experience in the property industry/built environment and is a continuum for the Introduction to Commercial Property Programme (ICPP). This learning opportunity caters for persons who often do not come from a traditional commercial property related background.

  • Examine the role of the property and the related economic imperatives in the context of the broader economic environment
