Student Award 2012

Summary, thesis and presentation

CoreNet Global’s Benelux Chapter also took the opportunity to announce the winner of the fifth annual Student Award Competition, which is open to Master of Real Estate students and post graduates across Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, and celebrates the most innovative and ground breaking thesis on corporate real estate management.

Wouter Würdemann of TIAS Nimbas was selected the winner from a shortlist of three finalists for his paper “CRE performance; the added value measured”. The judges selected the paper as the winner because it provides solid financial analysis and clearly illustrates the contribution that corporate real estate contributes to an organisation.
