Earlier, a voyage towards an endless journey of glory and success commenced with stanchions of slate and chalk. Now, the leeway in the 21st century is mushroomed by a smart electronic device and an internet connection. Identically, India, which is an agro-based nation, saw the paradigm shift towards corporate development with the bourgeoning demand for office space and residential accommodation. While the largest proletariat wave originates in agriculture, real estate stands second on the podium, albeit professional and prowess ones' are an Achilles Heel in this quadrant. Bracing up in the situation to cement the gap of professionals and impart mentoring as per the real estate sector requirement saw the dawn of an e-learning institution, Institute of Real Estate and Finance (IREF).
The nation is evolving where specialization in any productive curriculum can escalate an individual reach its reality of daydreams. Following the trend, IREF began its mission in 2012 and started providing the industry with skilled real estate professionals. Their curriculum has a union of education programs divided into eight-sets, which develops a pitch perfect and industry fit employee. A dedicated team of educators, mentors and content providers, who have more than ten years of industry experience, are constantly guiding and grooming the candidates, making them ready in Real Estate Management, Real Estate Construction and Housing Finance Sector.

So long, the triumph has been systematic and spontaneous for IREF. Through their post-graduate flagship program in Real Estate Business Management, candidates slide along and reach their desired destination in the respective fields. "We have collaboration with India's top B-school, Symbiosis Institute of Management Studies, as our partner in full-time post graduate program in Real Estate and Construction.

Persisting to a uniform acceleration of determination and dedication, IREF has accomplished the highest feet of recognition in 2013, when the institute was invited by the Government of India to give views on real estate regulation in front of the Real Estate Regulation Authority (RERA).

While the future has huge potential in online learning, the natural instinct of an Indian candidate revolves around classroom study. In any system, there are challenges incurred by the authority, likewise IREF has this major issue. The management has come up with a solution, where they provide offline classroom learning. Kumar justifies and says, "Once in every quarter an offline classroom session in Pune is conducted for three-days, where candidates come and interact with subject specialist, clear their doubts and perceive the required knowledge.
