What is the 'Master of Business Engineering' all about?

A business engineer is trained for analyzing and solving business problems from a quantitative and managerial point of view. The programme belongs to the domain of business economics and is management oriented: students learn how companies function, how business processes should be designed and how business activities can be optimally organized. The managerial focus is combined with strong analytical skills and a profound understanding of how business and (technological) innovation processes work. This integration of disciplines is of high relevance to production environments as well as to service companies (e.g. consultancy or ICT).

A business engineer is an interdisciplinary manager with an extended problem solving toolbox and a holistic view on modern companies in today’s economic, legal and social context. With a capacity for analytical thought, management and communication skills and an eye for sustainable opportunities, business engineers are able to shape the future of companies and organisations.

Structure

The Master of Science in Business Engineering is organised at two campuses: Brussels and Leuven. The programmes share a common structure and have the same compulsory courses. Each campus offers different courses in the majors, minors, and electives. Students on one campus have the option to follow some of the courses at the other campus.

 Majors offered in Leuven:

  • Accounting and Financial Management
  • Risk and Finance
  • Marketing
  • Production and Logistics
  • Data Science and Business Analytics
  • Industry, Global Value Chains and New Technologies
  • Technology and Entrepreneurship

 Majors offered in Brussels:

  • Quantitative Data Analytics
  • Technology and Innovation Management
  • Finance

This is an initial Master's programme and can be followed on a full-time or part-time basis. 

 International Experience

Do you feel like expanding your horizons? We encourage you to study abroad at one of the faculty’s exclusive partner universities in the first semester of the second year. Increasingly, employers value young professionals who are familiar with doing business in a multicultural and multilingual setting. Therefore, the faculty has a strong international focus with a flourishing participation of students in summer schools and exchange programmes. Make your experience truly international by studying in different parts of the world.

More information on the various international experiences the faculty has to offer can be found on this website.

Is this the right programme for me?

Are you a future business engineer? Then most probably you feel at ease with the following characteristics:

  • You imagine yourself as the moving force in a company or organization (this can be your own company, a multinational, a family business, a government service, a school, etc.).
  • You're an enterprising person and you aim at perfection in all your endeavors. You want to improve the functioning of companies and organizations, with clear and sustainable objectives in the long run, and with an eye for the social context in which companies operate.
  • You are an innovative manager. You want to acquire knowledge about other disciplines (math, science, technology) in order to better support the management of companies.
  • You're a global manager. Globalization demands great efforts of companies and organizations, and you feel at ease in an environment with enriching international contacts.

Career perspectives

 Graduates of the MSc in Business Engineering mostly take up managerial and/or research positions in business, national and international institutions, and at universities. Business engineers usually start their careers in technical expert positions within interdisciplinary management teams. They are typically hired to optimise production processes, to develop quantitative models in financial institutions, or to market technological innovations. They are also able to take up more traditional management tasks, armed with the ability to support key decisions using quantitative analyses. Business engineers quickly move up to executive functions in various management domains in companies and organisations. Given the variety of skills acquired, they are highly sought after by a wide range of companies – from start-ups and small firms to multinational corporations – for various positions in Belgium and abroad.

The human side of economics: the impact of psychology on decision making

Why do people not always act as rational economic decision makers? How can we apply mathematics and psychology to improve our economic models? Contrary to assumptions in traditional economics, people do not automatically choose the optimal course of action, even if given proper incentives. Intrigued? Our Behavioural Economics programme brings you the skills to optimise strategies and policies by including the framing and context that affect people’s choices.

The skills-based specialisation addresses the psychology of decision making. In both mainstream and behavioural economics courses you will acquire both a deep understanding of economics and the skills to adapt strategies and policies to deviations from rational behaviour.

Erasmus School of Economics, where else?

Few universities offer this increasingly popular stream in economics. If Behavioural Economics is your programme of choice, Rotterdam, frontrunner in economics, makes perfect sense. Select the curriculum that suits you best, study among ambitious and inquisitive co-students and benefit from the expertise of the internationally renowned Behavioural Economics Group.

Careers

Countries like the US, UK, and the Netherlands, and companies worldwide increasingly use the insights from Behavioural Economics to shape their policies. With this specialisation you can either help improve products, marketing policies, negotiation procedures, contracts, and financial portfolios in business, or design and improve public economic policies and strategies. It’s up to you. Careers are possible in many sectors, including: 

  • Consultancy
  • Financial sector
  • Governments
  • Research

"It’s great to be able to combine the math and psychology of Behavioural Economics with the track of your choice"

The MSc Behavioural Economics programme offers you a solid training in economics, complemented with psychological insights. Our students particularly appreciate the interactive nature of this programme. We gladly share their stories with you here

The HEC Paris MSc in International Finance (MIF) program caters for highly-motivated top achieving graduates looking to succeed in a career in finance and consulting. Read more

The HEC Paris MSc in International Finance (MIF) program caters for highly-motivated top achieving graduates looking to succeed in a career in finance and consulting. The program has a strong analytical focus yet is accessible from either business and finance (business track) or economics, math, physics, engineering (accelerated track) backgrounds.

A flexible curriculum

A ‘tailored-designed’ approach towards education is at the core when designing programs at HEC Paris. This is shown in at least two aspects of the HEC Paris MSc International Finance curriculum:

  • The courses taken during the first semester depend on your experience before joining HEC Paris. If you have already covered basic financial accounting, investment theory, and corporate finance, you will start finance classes at an advanced level (business track). If you have not done so, you will start at a more basic level with significantly more class hours at an accelerated pace to enable you to cover the same material by the end (accelerated track)
  • The second semester is comprised of more than 40 Concentration as well as free electives. More concretely, students must choose between a specialization in Corporate Finance and a specialization in Capital Markets. In addition, they have access to more than 15 free electives.

Balance between theory and practice

The number of hours spent in the classroom by HEC MIF graduates significantly exceeds international standards. Around half of that time will be spent in front of world class researchers, imparting you state-of-the-art knowledge. The other half will be spent in front of top-level practitioners. The latter is one of the many ways in which the learning experience at HEC Paris differs to most and adds another dimension to teaching. We feel it is important to complement theoretical teaching by using top researchers and practitioners lectures to give our graduates that "extra edge" over graduates from other institutions. The more competitive the environment, the more important having that extra edge is.

Strong and cohesive peer group

Who your peers are matters: with regards to the quality of your learning experience, the perception of potential employers and for the value of your network after you graduate. This is why academic performance is at the top of our admissions criteria. However at HEC we look for more than just academic excellence: smart, ambitious individuals will underperform without adequate interaction. We put a strong emphasis on group interaction and encourage it in any way we can. For instance:

  • Honours are granted on the basis of absolute GPA and not class percentile to make sure that no HEC MIF student can benefit from the underperformance of one of his or her classmates
  • A study trip is organized in the 3rd week of the program with all HEC finance students participating and interacting in both professional and non-professional activities

Life long ties

At HEC Paris, we pride ourselves on the fact that ties built on campus between both professors and students continue after students graduate and become alumni. Our alumni get directly involved in guiding the "new generation" of HEC MIF students and to make sure they achieve the same success as past students. A few examples:

  • Career and job training workshops the first week of the program
  • More than 250 students take part in the formal networking event on the London study trip… and many more at the less formal Friday night HEC Finance pub crawl: a unique opportunity to gain privileged access to young professionals from bulge bracket banks!

International diversity

With 29 different nationalities making up the class of 2016, the International Finance program is equally as enriching on a cultural level. Working alongside a diverse group of nationalities can be highly educational and rewarding and is a true highlight of the program for many. London is the main hub for HEC MIF graduates in terms of placements although we also have alumni working in Continental Europe, Asia, Americas, and the Middle East.
