Shrini – Business Management Online Live Program June 2020

I enjoyed the online course. I thought it was well planned easy for me to follow. I really enjoyed the classes and the format it was presented in. It was an amazing experience. I never expected to learn so much from an online class. Also, the assignments added to the entire learning process.

Real Estate Business Management is my 3rd online program at REMI, after getting certified in Introduction to Real Estate and REITs. The entire course was very detailed and organized. And the case studies were very effective and based on actual projects. To sum up my experience, I enjoyed learning real estate at REMI despite being completely new to the industry. The sessions were imparted in a student-friendly format and all doubts and queries were addressed.

I can proudly say that REMI has positively impacted my understanding of the real estate industry!

Thank you so much REMI!

Yatin – Business Management Online Live Program June 2020

It has been such an amazing experience with REMI. I would like to thank the faculty for sharing their tremendous knowledge. I never thought that understanding construction techniques and calculations will be so easy and especially for a non-technical person like me, it sure was a relief! The best part of the syllabus for me was learning about the overseas real estate market, which I believe only REMI is capable of teaching effectively. I also wish to thank the placement department for assisting me in getting my dream break with Shivalik Ventures as a Senior Marketing Executive.


I must say, REMI is making real estate more organised than before!

Prerana Mane, BMF Batch – Sept 2018, placed at Shivalik Ventures Pvt Ltd

REMI has been a pioneer in real estate education and has been bringing people associated with the field together under one roof. I am glad to be a part of the REMI family where all like-minded people are working hard together to bring a positive change in the market.


Thank you, REMI, for providing me with the opportunity to be a part of your good work.

Swapnil Tambe, BMF Batch – Sept 2018, placed at Shivalik Ventures Pvt Ltd

REMI has been a wonderful experience and I am very glad to be a part of it. I got the opportunity to meet different personalities from various fields and from different age groups, both amongst the faculty and my class mates I received a lot of knowledge from them. The faculty are experts in their fields and successfully solved all my queries effectively. REMI has given me confidence, which was missing earlier, and made me ‘market ready’. They also provided me with a placement, something which they had promised. I am now financially independent and this is a major accomplishment for me. REMI really works hard to shortlist the best real estate companies and place their students in them. I also get a lot of respect as a student of REMI at my workplace and in the real estate industry- such is their solid reputation and respect.

Shubham Agrawal, REMI, BMF Batch – May 2018.

REMI has been such a wonderful experience for me. Starting from Day One we got a chance to meet so many different experts and all those interactions enriched us. After I finished my course, I really missed the weekend lectures, my classmates, the faculty and the environment of REMI in general. I also got placed due to REMI and I am so glad to be on my journey to success.

Thank you REMI!

Abdul Tariq, BMF Batch – May 2018, placed at Rajdhyan Ventures Pvt Ltd

The real estate market currently is a market of immense opportunities and I wanted to be a part of it. I came to know about REMI at a college seminar. I chose to do a course here as REMI was offering something related to construction and yet covering every aspect of the real estate market, including marketing and selling, digital marketing etc. I learnt about RERA as well as the registration process for developers. I give REMI the credit for making me realise the vast opportunity for women in real estate I recommend REMI to any person looking to pursue a career in real estate.
