ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||The property management industry in Singapore has been affected by rapidly advancing technology in many areas. This study considers whether the property management courses in Singapore are adequate to equip student with the necessary knowledge and skills to face the challenges posed by rapidly advancing technology. Property management is increasing in demand as a profession in Singapore. One of the reasons is that the technology has made the work involve no longer as simple as perceived before. The full-time property management related courses being offered to prospectors in Singapore are mostly multi-disciplinary in structure, covering other areas of real estate beside property management. Hence, there is the question of whether the structure and contents of the courses available are sufficient to prepare the students to step into the industry that is so much affected by changing technology. The purpose of this dissertation is to determine the gap between education and technology and find ways to bridge or minimize this gap and at the same time improve the quality of the property management industry from the perspective of education. The study analyses the structure and content of courses and also looks into the ways to better equip the students for the mentioned purpose. An awareness of this would raise the quality of the industry. The investigation involves using statistics, surveys and case studies. The results of each study are then used to qualify the existing problem and suggest probable solution.||URI:||https://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/213327|
