Master in Real Estate Development (MRED) Scholarship Programme

The “REHDA Institute x PropertyGuru & iProperty.com MRED Scholarship” was jointly launched during the Green Build Conference 2022 by REHDA Institute Chairman (Dato’ Jeffrey Ng Tiong Lip), REHDA Malaysia President (Datuk NK Tong) along with REHDA Institute Trustees (Datuk Seri Fateh Iskandar Bin Tan Sri Dato Mohamad Mansor, Datuk Haji Muztaza Bin Haji Mohamed, Datuk Ng Seing Liong, Tan Sri Teo Chiang Kok) and PropertyGuru Malaysia senior representatives (Mr. Sheldon Fernandez and Mr. Joe Thor).

History of MRED

The Masters in Real Estate Development (MRED)’s first intake began in 2019, where we have around 14 students at the moment; most of them are mid-level management personnel involved in property development. The first cohort graduated in 2022 (where many of them were promoted to senior management roles upon graduation), and we are expecting the second graduating cohort in the coming months.

In addition to lecturers from UTAR, the MRED is also taught by industry guest lecturers consisting of captains of the industry (many of them are current and former senior management of large public listed companies in Malaysia). Some of the prominent guest lecturers include Datuk Seri Dr. Michael Yam Kong Choy, Datuk N.K. Tong, Datuk Sr. Charlie Chia Lui Meng, Mr. Ngian Siew Siong, Dato’ Pretam Singh Darshan Singh, Ms. Ho Kwee Hong and many others.

Other than upskilling those in the industry, the MRED is a great place to network amongst industry players and captains to create a more vibrant ecosystem in the construction and property development fraternity.
