- The most experienced graduates already work in real estate for over 10 years, in areas such as real estate consulting or financing & development.
- Registration open for the 2nd edition (September 2021 – May 2022).
BUCHAREST REAL ESTATE CLUB (BREC) announces the first promotion of the REAL ESTATE ACADEMY program, the premiere 100% private educational program in the real estate sector in Romania.
A total of 20 participants graduated from the courses of the program, held between September 2020 – May 2021 – a marathon of 9 modules with managers from the private sector as lecturers. One of the REAL ESTATE ACADEMY graduates, Călin Badea (23 years old, with previous experience in the constructions field) was subsequently recruited by CBRE – the leader of the real estate consulting market, present with over 530 offices worldwide, including Romania.
The program was similar to a master’s program, containing 9 study modules – the most important topics of interest in the real estate market: residential development (module supported by Antoanela Comșa, Gran Via), office development (Andrei Ivan, Skanska), logistics development (Sînziana Pardhan, P3), retail development (Ionuț Bordei, Element Group), brokerage & real estate consulting (Mihnea Șerbănescu, CW Echinox), legal real estate (Roxana Dudău, Noerr), asset management (Alin Andreescu, One United Properties & Laura Dumea- Bencze, CBRE Romania), real estate financing (Alexandra Popa, Element Group), marketing & communication (Despina Ponomarenco, BREC & Mihaela Ganea, Fronesis).
As an entirely private program, BREC ACADEMY covers the entire educational spectrum of the local real estate market. The graduates of the first edition of BREC ACADEMY are mainly active managers on the market – at developers or real estate funds, architecture offices, construction companies, consulting and banks, who wanted to complete their knowledge with topics adjacent to those in which they operate. In Romania, there is no similar public or private educational platform that fully covers the real estate market.
“Professionals on the local real estate market have been trained with the support of international colleagues and clients, through what we call learning by doing. The Romanian market has not benefited of many pedagogically structured education options, so BREC is an excellent initiative to gather along those who want to work in real estate with professionals who have learned from experience and can pass on their extensive know-how”, says Sînziana Pardhan, Managing Director Romania, P3 Logistics Parks.
“The BREC program was an opportunity for me to understand the specifics of each real estate segment and also brought me a new career opportunity, to work for the leader of the real estate consulting market“, says Călin Badea, a graduate of REAL ESTATE ACADEMY BY BREC, who became, starting June 14 this year, a Junior Consultant within the Industrial Services department of CBRE Romania.
The next edition of BREC REAL ESTATE ACADEMY will start in September 2021 and will contain two new study topics, namely “Real Estate Investments” – supported by Andrei Văcaru, Head of Capital Markets JLL Romania and “Hotels” – supported by Mircea Drăghici, Managing Director EST Hospitality Consulting, one of the best local specialists in this segment.
BUCHAREST REAL ESTATE CLUB (BREC) is the main platform for promoting the local real estate market, both domestically and internationally. BREC’s main mission is to improve the image of the real estate market and to develop programs that will contribute to the market’s development potential and increase the volume of foreign investments in the real estate sector in Romania.
BUCHAREST REAL ESTATE CLUB member companies are major investors, local and international, in the Romanian economy, active in the segments of urban regeneration projects, office buildings, logistics and industrial parks, retail parks, residential.
