On your way to getting your Bachelor of Arts degree, you will collect practical professional experience with us – and in multiple companies, different training stations and at different locations within the Group. The dual study course means the study and practical phases alternate around every three months. You will complete the theoretical phases at the HWR Berlin and the practical stages at Deutsche Wohnen. As a result, you will learn practical content that will guarantee you the best job opportunities later on.
Theory and practice
We work with the HWR Hochschule für Wirtschaft und Recht in Berlin (Berlin School of Economics and Law) to teach theoretical knowledge.
HWR Hochschule für Wirtschaft und Recht Berlin
The course comprises the following special subject modules:
- Placement at the University of Economics and Law (HWR) Berlin
- Familiarity with basic knowledge of business administration
- A multi-faceted insight into the sub-divisions of real estate management
- Management focuses on real estate investment and financing, real estate accounting and valuation, real estate marketing, urban development and project development
- Strategic aspects such as portfolio management and corporate and public real estate management are also part of the theoretical phases
Further information on the study programme and its structure can be found on the website of the HWR Berlin
During the practical training, you can expect demanding tasks and diverse challenges. You will be able to directly apply and expand on the knowledge you have acquired in your studies.
Here, you will have regular contact with customers and take care that everything runs according to plan, defects have been remedied and apartment viewings run smoothly.
Working with our Asset management is always a strategic advantage: Evaluating, analysing and optimising residential key figures, comprehensive real estate research including market, location and rent analyses and assistance in transactions.
You will learn how to create and evaluate exposés and how to carry out object analyses and evaluations. Other tasks are preparing and processing sales. You will be dealing with people a great deal and learn how to accurately place sales arguments and how to accompany interested parties throughout the entire sales process up to notarisation.
The teaching content in the Accounting/Consolidation department consists of: preparing document postings and executing postings according to the chart of accounts and posting programmes, creating monthly, quarterly and annual financial statements for specific business areas, processing account statements, digital invoice workflow, fixed asset accounting and VAT returns.
The tax department handles all income tax matters for the affiliated companies. You will gain an insight into the preparation of tax returns, the correspondence with the tax office, the review of tax assessments and the monitoring of tax audits.
You will learn how to communicate with banks in the context of opening and closing accounts, granting bank mandates, checking payments and account statements and liquidity planning. We will also teach you about the structure of corporate and property finance, including collateral and interest rate hedge transactions.
Everything that’s right: You will gain an insight into the variety of legal topics in our Group and their solution-oriented treatment, from A for share purchase agreements to Z for misappropriation. Discover and develop your sensitivity to legal issues, understanding of the legal structure of our Group and our diverse areas of practice, such as civil, corporate, capital market and financing law, litigation, negotiation, transaction support/merger & acquisition and compliance.
There’s a lot to discover: Take a look over your colleagues’ shoulders and learn how to calculate rent developments and control modernisation and repair measures. Customer satisfaction is key in this field, you and the team will ensure that everything runs smoothly.
Technical project management
You will work with architects and assist them in preparing tenders and commissioning and accepting construction projects. This is a crucial part of accommodation design and development. You will also learn all about the technical aspects of the residential complexes, e.g. when orders are placed or invoices are processed, to ensure that the technology runs without any problems.
You will learn everything there is to know about technical and infrastructural services, such as the duties of a caretaker. You will also learn how calls for tenders, awarding and contract management work. You will take part in process briefings and training courses and will be involved in technical inventory assessments.
We will show you how communication with third-party administrations and service providers works in close cooperation with the service points.
