Akelius University

Introduction

During 2016 Akelius will have two courses in Master of Business Administration in Residential Real Estate going on parallel.

The 2015/2016 MBA started in Toronto in September 2015 and will end in Berlin in September 2016 and the 2016 MBA started in Florida in January 2016 and will end in Berlin in January 2017.

In 2016 and 2017 the University will be upgraded with more online education. Therefore the next internal Master of Business Administration in Residential Real Estate for personnel within the Akelius Group is planned to start in September 2017.


2015/2016 Program

During 2015-2016 we will go to Toronto between the 13th of September to the 25th of September, and to Stockholm between the 18th of January to the 24th of January, to Cyprus between the 20th of May to the 27th of May and to Berlin between the 5th of September to the 10th of September.

The education is a vocational training where internal experts educate the students in how we do things within Akelius.

The idea is that a student should be able to fulfill the role as asset manager, make a transaction, let an apartment and so on after the education. All practical steps that we do in each process are included in the education; systems, forms, calculations, internal and external rules etcetera.

A written documentation is handed out at each meeting.

Presentation skills is an essential part of the University.

Before each meeting each student will be given an assignment. The student writes a report to the given assignment, this will be a part of the written documentation. The written report in English should be four to five pages. The template is available under Library and Templates.

Each student will give a presentation in English at the meeting. The presentation is supposed to take ten minutes. During the presentations the group is divided into three groups and the presentations will, all in all, last for approximately half a day. These presentations are seen as a part of the examination.
