This program will require an undergraduate business degree from a Canadian university as its normal entry requirement. Entry on the basis of other degrees and/or non-Canadian degrees will be evaluated case-by-case. Related degrees would have to show a rigorous business focus to be accepted (e.g., accounting, finance, economics, statistics, law, etc.; see the PGCV Admissions Guidelines for more detail). UBC/AIC has spent considerable funds developing a comprehensive appraisal education program, and this program is an excellent introduction to business and real property valuation for non-business degree graduates. The PGCV program is intended to streamline the requirements for students who have already covered much of the foundational knowledge required, and need only complete the core valuation topics to develop appraisal competency. For everyone else, the more comprehensive AIC education program remains ideal, as it promotes developing the supporting knowledge foundation necessary to becoming a real property valuation professional.
