Real Estate Management

_The real estate industry represents one of the most important industries. It accounts for approximately ten percent of the world GDP and contributes as much as seven percent of all jobs. Furthermore, more than 50 percent of most countries‘ national investment capital is invested in real estate. In contrast to many other asset classes, real estate investments require significant amounts of money. This holds for private individuals as well as for companies. Consequently, real estate management is of utmost importance in order to maximize the quality and value.

At the same time, the real estate sector accounts worldwide for 40 percent of the energy consumption, 30 percent of the resource consumption, 20 percent of the water consumption, and ten percent of the space consumption. Therefore, the real estate industry has the duty to develop concepts and projects reflecting the principles of sustainability._


Research
Nicolas Seyler committed his doctorate studies to sustainability in the real estate industry. As one of the main consumers of resources, real estate is also a main perpetuator of climate change. This effect is even aggravated as result of the building stock‘s low turnover rate. The majority of the buildings, standing in 2050, has been already built. Besides the myriad of resulting efficiency problems, enormous savings potentials exist which can be realized prospectively. Julia Brusgul focused her research on the management of shopping centers. Thereby, she laid emphasis on analyzing shopping centers‘ success factors in order to determine critical variable, which can explain rent increases and returns.
