Studying in the ConREM programme
ConREM is an English-taught joint Master's degree programme, which is conducted by the cooperation of the Metropolia University of Applied Sciences (Metropolia UAS) in Helsinki, Finland, and the HTW Berlin, Germany. This means one common admissions policy, one curriculum, one year in Helsinki, one year in Berlin, and one joint degree. This joint constellation makes the ConREM programme outstanding among other international Master's study programmes, as the home of studies is not one but two European countries. Next to the diverse study locations, the international experience in intercultural courses and teams, in which 40 students represent up to 25 nationalities, prepares our ConREM students to successfully collaborate within the building industry on an international level.
Gaining interdisciplinary knowledge throughout the whole building industry
Based on the students' prior academic knowledge and professional experiences, the programme primarily focuses on expanding the students' expertise into a global understanding of the whole building industry. Therefore, the first-year modules, like Sustainable Development or Renovation and Reconstruction, provide a basic insight into different technical areas, meantime second-year management and communication classes systematically merging these fields. As a result, ConREM graduates can successfully understand and manage complex relationships within the building industry, including aspects from building economics, law, and sustainability.
Work & Career
Successful graduates of the ConREM programme are in great demand, as they can respond to the increasing need for interdisciplinary skills in the real estate management field. Additionally, with accreditation as a Master's degree programme by ACQUIN (Accreditation, Certification, and Quality Assurance Institute), the ConREM programme also provides students with the postgraduate credentials needed to pursue PhD opportunities.
