The international boom-bust property cycle of the mid 1980s has given rise to changes in the French real estate world in the last three years. New openings and new careers have emerged. Moreover, these developments have spawned new Real Estate Education programs in some French Business Schools, which although few in number and based on Finance and Economics applied to Real Estate features, have proved to be successful. The paradox is that despite a long tradition in France in urban management and in real estate education centered on law studies, no real estate business, financial and economic courses have been forthcoming until very recently.
