|Iain Maxwell and Marcus de Minckwitz from Savills talking about Commercial Investment|
Towards the end of last month (September 2013), Nick French organised a day for the MSc Real Estate students where the MSc sponsors were invited to give talks on a variety of subjects including sustainability, commercial investment, landlord and tenant, valuation and residential. You may be wondering who the sponsors are and what they do. Read on.
The MSc Real Estate is sponsored by seven of the big players in the property industry: CBRE, Cluttons, DTZ, GVA, Jones Lang LaSalle, Knight Frank and Savills. The sponsors are there to support the MSc Real Estate through the contribution of their expertise, time and resources (not financial). Activities include hosting field trips, guest lectures, careers advice and sponsoring (supporting) events such as MSc Sponsors' Day. Here they are in their own words (from their own websites):
