The Real Estate School at Netanya Academic College broke new ground in the field of real estate studies in Israel and was the first to be approved by the Council for Higher Education. The School has an innovative, first-of-its-kind master's degree program that aims to provide professional and academic tools for specialization in the field of real estate. The founder of the School of Real Estate is Mr. Rony Zarom, an international technology and real estate entrepreneur, the controlling owner of the Aspen Group, and the founder and chairman of the Unistream organization that works to train youth in the periphery for business and social leadership.
Throughout the years since the establishment of the State of Israel, the field of real estate in general and the housing issue, in particular, has caught the attention of the Israeli public. The real estate industry, in light of its being a limited and valuable resource, is one of the central industries in every modern economy, and serves as a catalyst in the process of developing the Israeli economy.
In recent years, an attempt to deal with an abnormal rise in housing prices in Israel has been at the forefront of the public agenda, particularly in areas that are in high demand. In response to this increase in prices and as an attempt to curb the rise in housing prices, "exceptional" measures have been taken by various authorities. The purpose of these measures was to increase the supply of apartments and reduce demand. The use of the tools used by these authorities requires prior knowledge of the real estate field, appropriate professional education, and the correct use of advanced analysis tools in order to identify and characterize the trends in the real estate market and respond accordingly.

Issues in the field of real estate are complex, multifaceted, and multidisciplinary. They combine a number of systems that interact with each other: economic, social, legal, environmental, systems of employment, and more. In light of this, dealing with real estate issues requires comprehensive professional knowledge that is interpreted in a wide variety of areas and requires a specialization that incorporates planning aspects, economics, taxation, marketing, financing, management, law, etc.
One of the necessary conditions for the existence of a sophisticated and competitive real estate market is the availability of information and the ability to analyze the quality of that information with advanced research tools. A sophisticated real estate market will make it possible to act rationally while minimizing uncertainties and dispersing risks that are not inherent to the field of real estate. Due to the need for real estate professionals with knowledge in these complex fields, in recent decades many universities around the world have developed an academic field of real estate studies that equip personnel for research, management, planning, and practical work in the real estate field.
Even in the Most Prestigious Universities in the World
Prestigious universities around the world run graduate programs in real estate, including Harvard University; New York University (NYU); Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT); Columbia University; Cambridge University; London School of Economics; Oxford Brookes University; Hong Kong University; and Berlin University of Technology.
Netanya Academic College was the first in Israel to recognize the need to establish a Real Estate School. This came about from the growing interest in real estate in recent years and the understanding that one needs to use complex management and economic tools from various fields to meet the challenges in the field.
In order to provide students with in-depth knowledge in the field, the Real Estate School offers students a new master's degree program. The program’s courses provide students with an academic and practical background in real estate.
To date, dozens of students have studied at the Real Estate School, including CEOs and VPs of real estate companies, senior public figures, lawyers, accountants, appraisers, tax authorities, bankers, and more.
