Do you want to learn how to future-proof your investments in real estate?

The real estate market is constantly changing. The need for real estate is changing rapidly due to social, economic and technological developments. For example, the growth in the number of households led to a housing shortage and the increase in online shopping has resulted in a surplus of retail properties. And what will be left of the office after the pandemic? Future-proof real estate is flexible in use, easy to transform and can be used as an alternative. New real estate concepts are emerging, but are difficult to fit into a traditional real estate portfolio. Investing in future-proof real estate requires vision and courage. Do you want to develop expertise for real estate investments with future value? Then the Advanced Program "Investing in Future-proof Real Estate" is for you.

Looking for a study program that will help you create an impact on business and society? I’ll be happy to help you find the program or course of study that best suits your ambitions, learning goals and career path.

"I have become a much stronger sparring partner" "The focus on investing in future-proof real estate in the MRE program really got me thinking. I am now much more researching how I can combine profit and social value within my organization. For example, one of the KPIs of our team is that every future project must consist of at least an x percentage of circular building material. And thanks to the up-to-date knowledge about investing in future-proof real estate, I can make a substantiated contribution to the discussions about this. The attention to current affairs and room for discussions during the lectures makes the enthusiastically presented teaching material immediately practically applicable. Thanks to the collaboration with participants from other corners of the real estate world, I started looking at real estate from a much broader perspective. Very fun and educational. The training has made me more critical and convincing. I really benefit from this in my role as a real estate specialist.
