Department of Land Economy

Environment, Law & Economics

Students have opportunity to be assigned to an industry mentor, a senior executive or professional currently working in the real estate and finance industries. The Mentoring Scheme, supported by the Real Estate Advisory Board and by the Cambridge University Land Society, helps students understand the operation of the property markets, provides a point of contact to other in the industry and allows students to discuss career opportunities, research ideas and professional practice with experienced executives. The Mentoring Scheme enhances the Department’s interaction with Commercial property markets.

The mentorship scheme and related events allowed us to network with professionals, which helped many of us get a better sense of which area of the industry we'd like to move into (MPhil student, 2015-16 cohort).
