Our participants talk about the Executive Master of Real Estate


Walter Kemp

Appraiser of commercial real estate at Rijksvastgoedbedrijf

''Because I have been around for quite a few years, I needed in-depth and up-to-date knowledge on current themes such as Big Data, digitization, sustainability, the circular economy and financial innovation.' Walter: 'You get to work intensively with practical cases. This makes the program very practical and very applicable. I think the scientific basis is really valuable. Because you can better substantiate your points of view, you increase your persuasiveness. You are able to have a discussion instead of just giving your opinion. I wish that for everyone.''


Patricia Goudswaard

Director ERA VB&T Makelaars

''I learned to look at real estate in a different way and I wanted more depth in my work within the real estate industry. The MRE taught me to look at real estate in a completely different way: how can you invest and how do you get a return on it? Two topics that were discussed are directly applicable to our organization: big data and sustainability. We are rolling out a new brokerage model for which big data is extremely important. In addition, there is a major issue at our organization regarding the sustainability of real estate portfolios for large parties in the Netherlands. So do you want to look at real estate in a different way? Then I advise you to follow this course!''
