Requisite Knowledge for Effective Property Involvements in the Global Context

  • Stephen E. Roulac
Part of the Research Issues in Real Estate book series (RIRE, volume 7)


The requisite knowledge for making effective decisions concerning property involvements in the global context of the 21st century transcends the curriculum content of traditional real estate education. Traditional real estate education, biased towards and reflects a narrow, even restricted interpretation of the dimensions and domain of the discipline, often reflects a limited, culturally narrow, even parochial view of the world. Consequently, graduates of the prevailing programs of real estate study are unlikely to possess the required knowledge for effective property involvements in the global context. The knowledge that is needed to be known for effective property involvements in the global context, is the subject of this paper.
