Real Estate Economics

Real estate economics analyses the dynamics of real estate markets from the perspectives of e.g. business, planning, technology, value formation and law. The Real Estate Research Group at Aalto University is the only university-level research unit in Finland focusing on the broad area of real estate.
Real Estate Economics

The real estate sector plays a major role in most developed economies, as it is connected to all actors and actions in the society, from individual households to companies and the public sector. For example, in Finland, the sector comprises 70 per cent of our national wealth, 60 per cent of all investments, and 20 per cent of all jobs. 50 per cent of all climate change mitigation possibilities are estimated to be within the real estate sector. For all these reasons, digitalisation, climate change, urbanisation and other global trends are closely integrated into our research.

Our research themes are:

You can study real estate economics in the Bachelor’s programme in Built Environment, in the Master’s Programme in Real Estate Economics as well as in the Master’s Programme in Urban Studies and Planning (real estate specialisation).
