Real Estate & Leadership (MSc) Financing

Financing of the Study Course

The course fees are 22,500 Euro for the overall programme. HSBA alumni and partner companies, JOB & MASTER candidates as well as applications that reach us before 31 May receive a 10% discount on the course fees.

The course fees include the exam fees but please be aware that the study trip is not included. Usually the Real Estate & Leadership Foundation e. V. or the employer pays a part of the course fees.

All information on the three scholarships can be found on this page under "Financing with the HSBA Scholarship".

Financing with the Assistance from the Real Estate & Leadership Foundation e.V. (Full-time Option)

The financing scheme of the HSBA and the Real Estate and Leadership Foundation e.V. can provide full-time students of the programme with full or partial cover of the tuition fees. For further information, please refer to the sample calculation below.

The cover is available for admitted students who submitted a convincing application and are eligible after a selection process of HSBA. The reduction in tuition fees usually amounts to 60 per cent of the overall tuition and is awarded in conjunction with admission to the programme. More information can be found here (in German).

In order to apply for this programme, please add the following documents to your Master's application:

  • Letter of recommendation from the current or former employer as well as an academic reference.
  • Second letter of motivation to apply for the funding in which the applicant details why he/she is qualified for the funding and what he/she wants to achieve with respect to his/her social responsibility in the short-, mid- and long-term.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Yasmin Guillén-Lange.

Financing with the HSBA Scholarship

It is a matter of particular concern to HSBA to ensure that highly qualified and motivated candidates can attend the Master's degree programme despite the costs. Thus, HSBA supports particularly gifted applicants who require financial assistance in different ways.

Next to the early bird discount of 10%, HSBA scholarships for 25%, 50% and in special cases 100% of the course fees are offered.

Currently, three 100% scholarships within the HSBA funding programme are still available for particularly eligible applicants on the full-time option. HSBA hereby particularly supports applicants with the following backgrounds:

  • Expatriates and international professionals
  • Women in Technologiy: (future) female leaders
  • Engineers

All candidates should add a separate motivation letter to their application, in which their special suitability for the scholarship is explained. Please send your application for the scholarship together with your application to the study course to Anna Beek.

Financing with the JOB & MASTER Programme (Part-time Option)

HSBA’s JOB & MASTER programme is a free placement service for applicants looking for a study place who wish to combine challenging academic and professional development. Many companies that work together with HSBA value the highly trained applicants from different specialist areas and the possibilities for further education provided by HSBA’s MBA programme and therefore take on the study fees and pay a salary.

Financing with the Assistance from the Employer (Part-time Option)

The MSc Real Estate & Leadership is designed to train students for management tasks in companies and to lay the foundation for success. This is attractive to students and companies alike, which is why many employers support their employees both in financial terms and by granting additional free time for the master's programme.

The "Deutschlandstipendium" scholarships are awarded based on performance and amount to EUR 300 per month. 50% stem from public funding from the German government and 50% from the university's own private funding.
