The Executive Master in Future-Proof Real Estate has had a significant impact on my professional life. This programme has enabled me to master the concepts of sustainable real estate, making me more confident in advising my clients and helping them build sustainable buildings.
As a business leader, my vision has evolved. I now have a better understanding of economic, environmental, and social issues, which allows me to better support property developers in their projects and effectively guide them in constructing sustainable and high-quality buildings.
Eugénie Mennig
Participant 22-23
Executive Master in Future-Proof Real Estate
"The integrated project of the Executive Master in Future-Proof Real Estate was an incredibly enriching experience. Not only did it allow me to put the theoretical courses into practice, but it also made me aware of the existing constraints for implementing new perspectives and approaches in the field. The constant dialogue with different stakeholders, each bringing their own expertise, has been a real source of inspiration and learning.

Thanks to the evolution of our integrated project, I had the opportunity to explore and understand different aspects of real estate development throughout the year. This immersion allowed me to develop essential skills, both professionally and personally."
Bernard Van Dieren

“The Executive Master in Future-Proof Real Estate equipped me with knowledge, confidence and contacts in the sector. Concretely, this allowed me to personally study several real estate development projects and to initiate different approaches to acquire land suitable for the development of mixed and innovative projects.

This training is essential for any real estate professional wishing to contribute to the current transformation of the sector. It offers both access to an unrivaled professional network and the opportunity to meet very high quality speakers.”

“The real estate sector is undergoing an unprecedented transformation towards a truly sustainable management of both built and non-built environments throughout their various life cycles.”
