The dynamic domains of facility and real estate management are becoming increasingly intertwined. When it comes to creating an optimal environment for working, caring or living, real estate and facilities are inextricably linked. Strategic challenges require an integral approach in order to achieve business objectives. This creates a need for experts who can collaborate across disciplinary borders and who have the right knowledge to enable them to place the challenges in a broad perspective.


The Master Facility and Real Estate Management (FREM) raises your competence to an academic level. It is intended for students who are aiming to fulfil a role at management or policy making level or who want to manage complex projects. The programme is aligned with the real world of work and is regularly updated based on the most recent scientific insights.
