Taraani Mohammed, Property
Taraani recently graduated with her Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Property conjoint degree.
Property had been on my mind, but I didn’t know much about careers apart from real estate. Coming to the University Open Day cemented my interest.
“I’ve always been fascinated by the economy and the operations of large companies. However, I wanted something different to complement this. Property had been on my mind, but I didn’t know much about careers apart from real estate. Coming to the University Open Day cemented my interest. The lecturer put up $50 for anyone who could name a business that didn’t require property. Then it clicked.”
Conjoint degrees and diverse courses
“With the Commerce degree I’ve been able to get a broad view of many topics, including economics and finance. The conjoint allows us to explore many Commerce concepts in greater detail.
“I’ve enjoyed many courses, but Property Valuation was a stand-out. It was very practical. For instance, we had to create a valuation report for a property, which was marked externally by a valuer. That was a great way to get industry feedback.”
“The faculty offers many scholarships and awards. They also encourage and organise industry support and networking. There are lots of company scholarships, some with work experience.
“Having received company scholarships, it’s extremely reassuring to know that there are people in industry who believe in me. The interview process for scholarships has sometimes involved meeting CEOs of listed companies. That’s a rare opportunity for a university student, but one that the Property department makes possible!”
“I really like the range of extra-curricular activities available. For example, the Property Case Competition held by the Management Consulting Club.”
