The MSc in Real Estate Economics and Investment Analysis (REEIA) at University College London (UCL) is designed to equip students with an understanding of the economics of the real estate market and give them the skills to use data to make informed investment decisions.


Real estate is an important asset class. It is the most popular alternative to stocks and bonds and has an important place in investment portfolios of most investors seeking diversification. In fact, in most countries the property market has a higher market capitalisation than the stock market and comprises over 60% of the average household's wealth. Therefore, both economics and financial economics of the real estate market are rapidly growing fields.

At the same time, while availability of data has been hindering progress of research in this area for decades, recent developments in data collection and analysis offer opportunities recognized by academics and practitioners alike. This programme offers an in depth understanding of how this market works and how its constant changes can be analysed using data.
