The Master of International Business Economics and Management (Brussels) is a master programme for holders of a degree in a non-business economic or management discipline that prepares for a career in international business through the acquisition of business economic insights, knowledge and management skills.
The curriculum adopts a practical and business-oriented perspective, but still provides a thorough treatment, based in science, of major international business economic and management issues.
If you have direct access, you can follow the one-year Master’s programme. If you do not have direct access, you must first follow the 27 credits preparatory programme from September till January and start the Master’s programme in February.
