Career opportunities

Studying Management in Brussels — a city boasting many political institutions and the European or global headquarters of multinational companies — opens up a world of opportunities for your career. The population of Brussels is cosmopolitan and multilingual, with the city being a political and economic decision-making centre. The MSc in Management has a very strong connection with those companies and organisations in Brussels: many master courses organise lectures by high-profile industry leaders from companies like Oracle and Toyota, who share their management wisdom with the students.

We are able to create an interaction between academia and experienced members of society and business, thanks to our University’s Fellowship programme. These are exceptional people such as top-level executive officers, visionary politicians or decision-makers. They organise guest lectures based on their expertise and competences, give guidance on master’s dissertations, provide research data and offer or support internships.

Although internships are not part of the programme, the international business context of Brussels offers many internship opportunities for non-working students. Our Career Centre helps them in their search for non-credited internships, with professional guidance.
