CUHK ranks 14th worldwide for Real Estate Research Leadership

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) has achieved a global ranking of 14th in The Real Estate Academic Leadership (REAL) Institutional Rankings for 2019-2023, marking a climb of 13 places from the previous ranking. In addition, CUHK is ranked second in Asia and holds the first position in Hong Kong.

The REAL rankings meticulously assess the number of articles accepted to the top three real estate research journals, namely Journal of Real Estate Research, Real Estate Economics and The Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics. A total of 662 articles written by 1,037 authors across 528 institutions were considered for the listings.

This outstanding result is a testament to the University’s international leadership in research and its unwavering commitment to quality education and high-impact research. The Centre for Hospitality and Real Estate Research established in 1999 under the School of Hotel and Tourism Management at CUHK Business School, exemplifies the University’s efforts in fostering a conducive environment for research excellence for the hospitality and real estate industries. To date, the centre has earned a reputation as an industry knowledge hub and a leading source of exceptional research, executive education, and professional services.

Expressing his delight at the achievement, Professor Desmond Tsang, Acting Director of School of Hotel and Tourism Management, said, “Over the last two years, we have made remarkable progress in establishing ourselves as one of the top institutions in real estate research. Starting at 27th in the REAL Institutional Rankings for 2018-2022 and now ranking 14th, this recognition reflects our dedication to research and underscores our strives towards excellence.”
