At a recent engaging session at Proptech Convention ’23, Mr. Muhammad Rizwan Khan, Founder & CEO of Alpha Hycon, shared his visionary approach to revolutionizing real estate education in Pakistan. His speech, marked by a blend of passion and practicality, delved into the launch of a high-level diploma in real estate, designed to address the educational gaps in this vital industry.
Mr. Rizwan emphasized the significant role real estate plays as a major employment sector in Pakistan, second only to agriculture. Despite its vast scope, many enter the field without formal training, learning on the job. To tackle this issue, Alpha Hycon introduced a comprehensive diploma program in collaboration with the Center for Executive Education. The goal? To organize and formalize the academic side of real estate, providing a central platform for professional development. This three-month program, held on Saturdays, was thoughtfully crafted with input from nine expert faculty members and included 16 diverse modules.
The core of the program centered on developing practical skills crucial for decision-making in real estate. Mr. Rizwan highlighted areas such as development planning, financial management, and understanding Pakistan’s complex regulatory framework. The course aimed to equip participants with essential industry knowledge, enabling them to make strategic decisions effectively. Moreover, topics like real estate investment trusts (REITs) and affordable housing technology were introduced, acknowledging emerging trends in the industry. The program also included guest speakers and field visits, offering students firsthand exposure to real-world scenarios.
Alpha Hycon’s initiative marks a significant step towards enhancing the professional standards of the real estate industry in Pakistan. By providing a structured educational framework, they aim to nurture a new generation of well-informed, effective decision-makers in real estate. With plans to expand and refine the program, Alpha Hycon is poised to make a lasting impact on the industry.
