About

History

Created in 1903 by Ernest Solvay, the famous Belgian chemical industrial of his times, Solvay Brussels School is the faculty of Economics and Management of the Université libre de Bruxelles, one of the largest universities in Belgium.

Education

Short, medium and long courses in various fields, in English and French. For professionals seeking to upgrade their skills, advance their career and successfully manage businesses of all sizes.

Research

Research is a core mission of SBS-EM—and of the Université Libre de Bruxelles—and a key ingredient underlying its vision statement: to become a top institution in Europe. Generating high quality research is important for three main reasons:

  • to develop and improve material and methods used in training and education, as academic programmes rely heavily on advanced and up-to date knowledge;
  • being active in research enables the School to continue absorbing new knowledge generated elsewhere in the world;
  • research contributes to the international visibility of the School, a factor that is particularly relevant for the masters and doctoral programmes

lessons where intense and vigorous

Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

Solvay has had quite a reputation for years. However, this reputation is out of date. Today, Solvay offers overly theoretical courses given by mediocre professors in crowded auditoriums. The infrastructure and support are poor during bachelor years, and become decent only when reaching masters.
