The real estate markets have become global. That urges for real estate professionals who are trained in integrating financial and economic-geographic skills with knowledge of local institutions.

The real estate markets have become global, making the real estate profession an international enterprise. At the same time global, commercial brokers report huge differences among local real estate markets. That urges for real estate professionals who are trained in integrating financial and economic-geographic skills with knowledge of local institutions.

The Department of Economic Geography at the University of Groningen is one of the leading centres in Continental Europe in real estate. It offers a Master of Real Estate Studies that integrates financial engineering, location theory and planning.

Studenten en docenten aan het woord

afgestudeerd in 2009 werkzaam als Project manager and consultant bij ProcapReal Estate Studies
Working on the safety of the Netherlands
Hi! I'm Kasimir and currently working on the safety of the Netherlands. Safety, because I'm working on a project for strengthening of the Afsluitdijk, a waterworks icon of the Netherlands. And as is widely known, the Netherlands are largely below sea level. Therefore, it is of great importance to keep our waterworks in perfect condition in line with future climatological changes.
Within the project 'the Afsluitdijk' (literally meaning 'closing dike'), I'm responsible for the stakeholder management. I have to foresee possible future interventions of stakeholder-issues and anticipate on it. This means that I have to deal with a great variety of actors and even so stakes, which makes it a very challenging and exciting job. 
Although most of the week I'm working on this project, I have several other projects I work on as well. This is possible, because my employer is not the Dutch government, but Procap, a middle-sized consultancy and project management company. I started to work for Procap in 2012 as a project manager and consultant, almost 2 years after I graduated.
So how did I get to where I am now? First we have to go back to 2008, the time when I had to choose a master...
I knew that I was interested in the brick world and its environment. Therefore, I decided to start with two masters in Groningen: Spatial Planning and Real Estate Studies. In my opinion both studies are complementary to each other and I enjoyed the focus of the micro and macro of both masters. Because in the end, isn't it nowadays about an integral approach?
After my graduation in 2010, I started with an internship at an engineering company. I did this, because I thought an internship would help me to get acquainted with the work field and to support the decision to start to work in the field I'm interested in. During my internship I conducted my master research and apparently I did well, as the engineering company said they would be happy to hire me as an advisor. Which I was willing to do, but first I had to go to NYC for a fellowship, where I got accepted as a visiting fellow for the period of three months.  When I got back from NYC, unfortunately, the engineering company couldn't offer me the job anymore because they had to fire 300 people. So this is the moment where I had to start to search for a job,
I started to contact the people in the field of spatial planning and real estate who I already knew and who could possibly help me. Doing so, I managed to get several interviews. However, due to the economic crisis, most companies were not willing to take the risk of hiring a new person. Except for Procap, who had just fired some people, but were interested in having me as a research intern. I was eager to help them for a couple of months as an intern, but right after we were about to close the deal, a social housing company contacted me and asked whether I was interested to work on Bonaire, an island in the Caribbean. I couldn't refuse this offer. I had a great time and learned a lot, but after one year it was time to move on and I mentioned to Procap I was going back to the Netherlands. This is when Procap contacted me again, and we managed to agree on the right terms, which makes that I've been happily working for them since 2012.  
After all I feel the internship helped me to expand my network, helped me to understand how to be a professional and use my knowledge and skills I gained during my studies and extracurricular activities. As a student there's so much you don't know and the way companies work you can only discover while working for them.
