Graduate year 2010
Why have you decided for the master’s degree program “Facility and Real Estate Management”? What makes it special for you?
On the one hand, I have always been interested in this subject and on the other hand, after completing my studies in business, I wanted to have a practical further training in the field of real estate management.
I especially like the design of the study program with the wide range of subjects. I decided to specialize in "Real Estate Management" and see it as very positive that the basics of facility management are taught as well.
What courses have you attended so far and what have you learnt?
The courses so far attended cover a wide range of subjects. Each course was comparatively new to me and, as I come from another industry, highly informative.The lecturers have an incredible know-how. Coming from university, I am always surprised to be involved in the courses here.
Have you already worked on a project? What was it about? What have you contributed?
Our first project is still in its initial stage. We will travel to Vienna end of May and hold a scientific lecture about the development of the real estate markets in Vienna and Eastern Europe in front of a real estate investor who is active all over Europe.
To what extent, do you think, are job, studies and private life compatible?
Studying and working at the same time is of course an additional challenge, but feasible. In the beginning, I had to get used to not having the week-end at my disposal any longer. But I, as well as my personal environment, got used to it quickly. Furthermore, two years of studies are a manageable period of time.
What career opportunities do you expect from your master’s degree?
Completing this master’s degree program enables every graduate to professionally develop. Coming from another industry, I hope to be able to make many contacts in the Real Estate World - apart from acquiring new knowledge.
