The real estate sector in India is touching heights at present. With numerous Government development agendas, the sector is now going through its boom phase and that is going to continue for more than a decade now.
Thesector of real estate sector registered a rise of 40% in the sales in the very 1st quarter of 2018. The growing economy and improving urban living standards is also boosting the demand for fascinating spaces to live and work in.
This obviously has resulted in the requirement of more trained professionals in the real estate sector. But there is a lack of the same along with a complete absence of any infrastructure to create such professionals.
Mr. Pradip Chopra, Chairman of the real estate company, PS Group said, “Real Estate even today is the second largest employer in the country after agriculture. And the growth potential of employment in real estate is the highest in all sectors of the economy. However, not a single university or college is offering a real estate program. Even the real estate developers and the real estate consultant organizations who want to organize themselves or want to professionalize, are struggling because of an acute shortage of trained manpower.”
Realizing the problem and also with the intention of providing a solution to the existing need of professionals in the sector, Mr. Chopra started off an undergraduate course on real estate at the real estate college of iLEAD in Kolkata.
Talking about it, he said, “iLEAD has introduced a real estate management program at undergraduate level from the academic year 2018. There are over 20,000 registered developers in 175 chapters of CREDAI which stands for The Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association of India and even if they all require one person every year, we require 20,000 real estate professionals every year. However, there’s no supply of the same.”
The course of BBA in Real Estate Management is affiliated to MAKAUT (Maulana Abul Kalam Azad University of Technology) in association with CREDAI and RECA and is promoted by PS Group. With such giants of the industry providing a backing to the course, it is ought to be one of the most employment oriented real estate management courses in Kolkata.
Mr. Pradip Chopra further said, “iLEAD’s real estate program is absolutely in sync with the industry requirements because both CREDAI and RECA, the two major organizations of realtors are participating in this program. They are going to provide internships and placement facilities to all the participating students and also provide hands on learning opportunities, field trips to all the real estate students who are joining this course. So I think, this is one program which offers you tremendous opportunities in career as well as in getting self employed and also to become an entrepreneur.”
The course is unique and the present dearth of real estate management courses in Kolkata makes it all the more distinctive. It provides students with real opportunities to learn and work under some of the biggest brands of the industry and also helps them to develop a network of their own.
Hence, in case you are looking for building your career in real estate and is searching for a course or college that will prepare you for the same – iLEAD is the real estate college you are searching for.
