“The mentoring programme was an invaluable help as a student coming from an architecture background looking to transition into real estate finance. It gave me important insight and a direct connection to the professional world and was key for my transition into real estate. Cambridge would not have been the same for me without the mentorship programme, and I have since made it a point to always meet with students who contact me seeking advice to transition into a new role of field.”

Patricia Brizzio, MPhil in Real Estate Finance (Newnham 2011)

“Through mentoring students approaching a notoriously challenging job market, through the strategic advice to the Department of Land Economy that helps to ensure their priorities remain those of the real world, and, most of all, through the generous financial support that CLEAB has given to and facilitated on behalf of the Department – the Board is making a significant contribution to the subject, and to the University as a whole.“

Professor Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge.

“Among the results of CLEAB’s support is a broader understanding within the University that Land Economy is the nexus of interdisciplinary thinking in Cambridge in the fields of environmental policy and law, and economically sustainable future cities.”

Professor Phil Allmendinger, former Head of the Department of Land Economy and incoming Head of the School of the Humanities and Social Sciences.
