Master in Real Estate

The Master of Science in Real estate covers all relevant topics in the industry. Throughout all courses, innovation and entrepreneurship are encouraged – as is the practical application of theory and new ideas in assignments and real-life projects. Further highlights include exploring complex investment and financing structures, valuing properties with physical site visits, cash flow modelling, and the integration of ARGUS software. There are also more than ten guest speeches per year from CEOs on important topics relating to real estate.


Value Proposition
EBS is committed to excellence, entrepreneurship and an international approach. And in this programme, students are given not only a first-rate education in real estate but also in the related fields of law, tax and economics. Classes are small and taught by internationally ranked professors who welcome close collaboration and discussions. It is a programme built to give students the best education and future job opportunities possible. The programme is accredited by FIBAA and the Royal institution of chartered surveyors (RICS).

Connection to the Corporate World
The EBS Master of science in Real estate programme is strongly linked to the corporate world with a range of national and international partners from various sectors of the real estate industry. With his team at the Real estate Management institute (REMI), the academic director of the programme maintains those partner-ships and incorporates interesting key players and topics in the programme from companies such as Aareal Bank AG, alstria First German REIT, Corestate Capital AG, Deutsche Asset and Wealth Management, Real I.S. and ECE Projektmanagement. Managers and professionals also frequently contribute to the Master’s courses with guest lectures, field trips, panel discussions and the joint supervision of Master’s theses. The programme also draws on the support of IMMOEBS – the largest real estate alumni network in German-speaking countries with approximately 2,500 members.

Career Prospects
Equipped with expert knowledge in the field of real estate, a vast spectrum of career opportunities is open to graduates. These include, but are not limited to real estate investment, financial analysis, appraisal, fund management, property management, investment banking, private equity, and real estate development. Career coaching in one-to-one talks and academic guidance from industry professionals are part and parcel of this programme. And over the past few years, EBS has developed an excellent placement record for the real estate profession with competitive starting salaries

Internships
In order for you to get real working experience and the best shot at entry-level positions, an internship with a duration of a minimum of six weeks is integrated into the programme. This can be planned to suit your individual career goals.

Semester Abroad and Dual Degree Option
Getting international experience is essential for a business leader. That’s why it’s compulsory to either spend a semester abroad at one of our 240 partner institutions or continue your stay in Germany (for students whose degree was obtained in a non-German-speaking country). You can also spend an extra semester abroad and combine your EBS Master’s qualification with an MBA or a specialist Master’s degree from your host university.

Special Preparation Semester for Students with a non-business degree
At EBS, you can even earn an internationally recognized Master of Science without holding a degree in business studies. For students who have a non-business Bachelor’s degree e.g. in computer science, Political science, law or engineering, we are proud to offer a preparation semester with the required business knowledge for the EBS Master’s programme. The preparation semester is begun the semester before starting the Master of Science.

German Track for students who have already studied abroad
Instead of spending a semester abroad, students with a degree from a non-German-speaking country can spend a further semester at EBS in Germany, giving them the opportunity to learn more about the country and the culture. Over three semesters at EBS, you will be able to improve your German language and intercultural skills enormously. And greatly improve your job perspectives in a German multinational organization after your graduation.

Proof of a Bachelor or equivalent degree

A Bachelor´s degree with a minimum of 180 ECTS from a college, university, or technical school of acceptable standing is the major entry requirement for admission to the programme:

  • For students who hold a non-business Bachelor’s degree EBS offers a preparation semester, where you can gain the required business knowledge for the MSc programmes.

Letter of motivation and CV

In addition to a current CV, applicants should submit a letter of motivation of approximately two pages in length outlining in detail the reasons for applying for the respective Master’s programme. Proof of work placement

Proof of internship

EBS traditionally places great value on practice-relevant education, therefore proof of 10-week work placements is a prerequisite for admittance to the Master’s programme. Work placements in Germany and abroad are acceptable, on condition that they were completed during or after the Bachelor’s or equivalent degree programme.


EBS Master’s Admission Process

The Master’s admission process is a standardized process developed by staff and faculty members at EBS and conducted under their direction and supervision. If the application documents meet our admission requirements, candidates will be invited to take part in the EBS Personal Master’s Assessment (PMA). The PMA consists of a 45-minute interview.

Candidates who participate in the PMA are evaluated by small groups of specially trained and experienced observers. They assess the candidates’ motivation, their social competence, their abstract reasoning skills, and their communication and presentation skills.

Once evaluation of the oral admission process has been completed, candidates will be informed within a week after their assessment whether they have gained a study place at EBS. Upon request, the offer of a study place may be converted into a study place reservation for the following year.

Fees for taking part in the PMA amount to 100 euros.
There is no legal right to a study place.

The selection of funding of studies is diverse and often a combination of the different options is useful. Take a look at our study finance overview and find out which offer best suits you.

  • Scholarships - financial and / or non-material support, no repayment, no interest

The EBS herself, but also independent foundations offer scholarships in different style and performance.

  • Education Fund - Financial and moral support, if necessary, repayment including interest rates, repayment starts only after graduation

The former club of the EBS “EBS Alumni” supports students of EBS through a separate education fund.

  • Financing - Financial support by financial institutions, repayment including interest rates, repayment generally starts after signing the contract

A traditional financing from banks or financial institutions may be a good option to finance studies completely or in parts. The KfW Student Loan or the financing model of the Nassauische Sparkasse, for example.
