|Department||Business School View department profile|
The Master of Land Economy in Rural Surveying and Rural Property Management is concerned with the management of land and its resources, rural businesses and their associated activities and interests. This is the only masters programme of its kind in Scotland, accredited by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), and allows graduates to proceed to the Assessment of Professional Competence and full professional membership of the RICS.
This programme provides a range of knowledge and skills e.g. land management, public policy, law, planning, economics, and valuation, integrated to meet the future challenges facing landowners and land managers. Understanding of traditional land management (agriculture, forestry, sporting) and emerging and topical issues (environmental and conservation activities, tourism projects, planning issues, countryside access, diversification projects, steading conversions and renewable energy initiatives) is combined with an understanding of the business skills necessary for successful decision-making and rural business management.
As a rural land and business manager the student/graduate is concerned not only with practical land management but also with the financial, legal, planning, and policy contexts within which decisions are made and business interests managed.

2:2 (lower second class) UK Honours degree, or an Honours degree from a non-UK institution which is judged by the University to be of equivalent worth.
