Did you know that Real Estate is an academic science and that Stadim - Valuation & Strategy in Real Estate's frontman Philippe Janssens is one of the founding fathers of the discipline? Real Estate Science ('Vastgoedkunde') has been a postgraduate programme at Postuniversitair Centrum KU Leuven for decades, combining unique real estate insights with strategy and leadership. Last Thursday, at a delightful end-of-year dinner for alumni students of the programme, Philippe was celebrated for his contribution to the curriculum. During 25 years, he has been teaching the ins and outs of real estate valuation in his own inimitable and passionate way - a way that many real estate professionals will remember. Congratulations Philippe!
