Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Highly recommeded! i took this module as part of my core modules for Real Estate during my Year 1 Semester 1. This module is a straightforward introduction to finance in general and also basic real estate finance. A financial calculator is required and mastering how to use it would be very useful for examinations.
This module equips students with the basic financial skills and knowledge necessary for further studies in real estate finance and investment. The topics include money and interest rates; financial markets and financial institutions; risks and returns; capital budgeting; basic accounting statement and financial indicators; financial securities; shareholder and capital structures.
