Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the use of assessment to manage some of the challenges diversity brings into the teaching and learning in international real estate degree programs. Design/methodology/approach – The paper is a multi‐year case study of a course in real estate valuation in a Swedish University. The impact of assessment on student experience and performance was analyzed. Findings – Changes in the timing and rules of assessment have an appreciable impact on differences in student performance. However, some diversity problems must be addressed also at the program level. Practical implications – Real estate departments must exercise pedagogical leadership if they are to continue to effectively provide globally relevant education. Originality/value – This paper analyses one of the consequences of the expansion of international real estate education into a non‐traditional destination for foreign students.
