Dr Jason (Jongseok) Rim


I am a Lecturer in Real Estate and the Course Director of the BSc Real Estate Management programme at Kingston University. With over two decades of banking industry experience complemented by a robust academic background, I offer a rich blend of knowledge and expertise to my role. My professional journey is underpinned by a steadfast commitment to sharing my expertise, nurturing future professionals, and continuously fostering an inspiring educational environment.

As both a CFA Charter Holder and a Chartered Surveyor, I draw upon my comprehensive analytical and quantitative skills in various professional capacities. My teaching approach is practical and example-led, consistently delivering strong learning outcomes for students. My fundamental aim is to create an inclusive learning environment where students, regardless of their prior background in finance and accounting, can master the essential principles of business studies. I am devoted to encouraging my students to think critically, enabling them to apply theoretical knowledge effectively in real-world scenarios, especially within the realms of Banking, Financial Markets, and Real Estate.

Beyond teaching, I am an active researcher with a keen focus on financial innovations and adaptations in response to shifting market conditions. My research interests centre on financial markets, financial institutions, and real estate finance. I am particularly fascinated by the transformative impact of technological advancements and evolving environmental commitments on the financial ecosystem. I explore how these dynamic factors are reshaping various aspects of finance, including financial markets, corporate finance, and household finance. Committed to contributing meaningful insights, I am particularly intrigued by the evolution of the financial ecosystem in light of these changing dynamics.
