The Oxford Brookes Real Estate Management Society (“OBREMS” or “the Society”) is an alumni association of Oxford Brookes University (“the University”) graduates who work in the real estate sector. The Society’s membership predominantly consists of Chartered Surveyors who have studied at the Department of Real Estate & Construction of the University. The Society is also open to real estate alumni of the University who are working in fields allied to the property market (such as banking, the law, private equity, marketing and recruitment).
As at January 2013, the Society has 950 members spanning graduating years from the 1970’s to 2012.
Each year OBREMS organises 10 – 15 social, sporting and CPD events, 5 Prizes within the University, around 4 internships and in the last 3 years have facilitated a number of full time graduate positions.
In the long term we aim to work closely with the University and its Alumni Office to enhance the University’s reputation as a leading centre for academic excellence. We have two Gold Annual Sponsors and a Recruitment Sponsor whom advance us closer towards achieving this objective. In the long term OBREMS could, for example, provide financial contributions towards the running of academic courses or research projects, whereas support to students may be by way of mentoring or the provision of sponsorships or scholarships.
Finally we aim to act as a networking medium for our members and in turn raise their profile within the industry.
