Impact investing and thesis work

We are now looking for students to write their Master or Bachelor thesis with us during the spring semester 2020. The thesis should aim to identify appropriate impact measures in the residential real estate sector from the perspective of an impact investor.

Impact investing combines the rigorous analytics of financial investing with the heart of philanthropy and seeks a double bottom line return: financial return and positive impact (i.e. social and environmental benefits). While the reporting of ESG issues is now standard practice at many of the world’s large and mid-cap companies, it is usually confined to information about commitments and process and rarely scores actual impact on customers or society. Examples of important objectives of the thesis work are:

  • Identifying target social and environmental outcomes
  • Identifying methods for measuring positive impact
  • Proposing suitable KPIs that can be used for reporting purposes


We are looking for (preferably two) students at Master’s or Bachelor’s level with a background in Accounting, Business Administration, Economics, Finance, Real Estate and/or Engineering. Starting date is preferably early 2020 and ending before the summer vacation 2020.

Please apply with CV, personal letter and grades on www.career.brunswickrealestate.com no later than December 20th 2019. If you are two students who want to apply together, please submit both CVs and a common cover letter.
