Sustainable Real Estate Management - Masterstudium

Climate-friendly construction and the long-term energy-saving development and operation of real estate are central topics in the future real estate industry. The part-time degree program responds to the current and dynamic development in the real estate industry and provides core competencies for the sustainable development or management of real estate and mobility on an ecological, economic and social level. In addition to comprehensive knowledge in the areas of economics, architecture, law and traditional real estate project development, the focus is on new technologies such as digitalization (such as BIM and GIS) and their potential, as well as infrastructure planning and mobility. The total of nine block weeks take place alternately in Carinthia, Vienna and once abroad in the form of an excursion (Germany/Frankfurt am Main).

Focus of the Master of Sustainable Real Estate Management

Graduates of the master's program in Sustainable Real Estate Management can be successful in the long term. With sound knowledge, they have the entire life cycle of a property, from location, flexibility in use, ESG guidelines, CO2 neutrality and EU taxonomy in mind. The students gain knowledge about the development of hybrid real estate projects and find flexible solutions in real estate use as well as the craft of the classic property developer among others know-how about the cooperation with stakeholders, the changing society and basics of futurology.  Students work together in interdisciplinary teams, depending on the sector in which they are active, and benefit from each other while working on three projects. A combination of a total of only nine block weeks in presence in Carinthia, Vienna and Frankfurt (D, excursion ) as well as distance learning elements between the block weeks facilitate the studyability alongside the job.

Campus & Arrival

Spittal an der Drau stands out

The comedy town of Spittal in the Carinthian Oberland with its 16,000 inhabitants knows perfectly well how to combine living tradition with a culturally conscious present.

It is not without reason that the university town of Spittal, situated between education, culture and nature, presents itself as a true experience for body and soul. Cultural awareness, living tradition and a touch of southern serenity - these are the characteristics that make the "little historical town" so worth living in. Lake Millstätter See invites you to swim in summer, in winter the Goldeck is waiting for you to enjoy skiing. Shopping, cultivated gastronomy and cultural activities complement this perfectly. Studying in Spittal an der Drau is therefore a true experience for body, mind and soul!

The Villach region combines tradition, cosmopolitanism and quality of life with the advantages of an innovative business location. Villach, a small town with about 60,000 inhabitants, is an international high-tech location with groundbreaking cooperation between science and industry and is also increasingly developing into a start-up town.

Situated directly at the intersection of three cultures, Villach, situated on the Drava river, is an important traffic junction in the Alps-Adriatic region. This special geographical location and the beautiful landscape around Villach and in the federal state of Carinthia have made the region a popular holiday destination for generations, further beyond the borders. The drinking water quality of the lakes and the particularly clean air make Villach and its surroundings an environmental paradise.

In addition to its geographical advantages, Austria also leads the world in terms of its social and health care system and is considered a particularly safe, prosperous and liveable country.

Despite the above-average prosperity and the comprehensive state social benefits, Villach compares favourably with many international destinations. The "small town bonus" comes into its own here and makes everyday life affordable.
