Scope of MBA in Real Estate & Infrastructure Management

The Indian real estate sector is one of the most globally recognized sectors. The share of real estate sector in India’s GDP is expected to rise from 6.8% in 2013 to 13% by 2028. In absolute terms the size of the sector is expected to increase seven times from USD 121 Billion in 2013 to USD 853 Billion in 2028.  In the country, it is the second largest employer after agriculture and is slated to grow at 30 per cent over the next decade. There is huge scope in making career in this sector and there are several Institutions today which are offering courses in Real estate, construction and Infrastructure management. With our Prime minister’s focus on providing housing for all and developing smart cities in the country, it is an excellent opportunity to make a career in this sector. Further, the Government’s push towards both new city developments and infrastructure creation & augmentation has given a major boost to the sector. With large planned budget outlays being invested into these industries the entire economy is expected to get a jump-start. The industry needs to plan for this growth in terms of skilled manpower requirements that the expected growth will generate. The already large skill gaps in the employed workforce and general shortage of new hires will need to be overcome by industry. This can be achieved by collaborating with academia on industry specific course development, research and training of its manpower at all levels including managerial and wage earners whether employed or outsourced.
