The aim of this term is to enable you to continue your real estate studies in our ESCP Europe London Campus. There you will take courses on real estate development and meet leading professional in top notch real estate UK companies. Site visits in London are part of your curriculum this third term.
From mid-April to end December, you must complete an in-company internship of at least 4 months (though often lasting for 7-8 months). ESCP Europe assists you in locating internship opportunities and networking with companies.
The internship is an opportunity for practical application of the theoretical concepts learned from courses, with an eye to establishing a career. In many cases, corporate employers consider the internship as a trial period for a permanent position.
The Corporate Relations Department
The Company Relations Department is dedicated to gather placement offers from many companies. The department also organises a series of fairs involving firms, giving you many opportunities to make contact.
The thesis is an applied research project in consultation with an academic advisor based on a professionally-oriented topic.
It is a chance for you to synthesise learned material through analysis of a particular corporate issue by using clear, detailed argumentation. The thesis marks the culmination of the degree and is orally presented to a committee at the end of the programme. It represents 30 of the total of 90 ECTS credits earned over the year.
“Real estate education at ESCP Europe could not be any better. It provided me with the key quantitative and conceptual skills needed to make complex decisions required in the real estate finance sector. The program has a very practical approach. From the beginning you learn how to create financial models with Excel. There is also extensive use of real business cases and the opportunity to attend conferences of experts in the field. In addition, thanks to ESCP Europe's strong connection with the corporate world, I had the opportunity to do an internship at BNP Paribas Real Estate with subsequent career opportunities at the company.”
