About the programme

The 2-year Master in Business and Technology, organized by the Solvay Business School of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, focuses on business aspects of modern-day technology. The programme contains advanced business courses, technology courses, as well as courses that combine both perspectives, such as the Entrepreneurship course.

This English variant of the Dutch-language Handelsingenieur ('Business Engineering') Master is not just a copy. On the contrary, the Solvay Master of Business & Technology focuses even more on IT and innovation and has a clear international flavour.

You will have the opportunity to take a number of elective courses in the second year, thus allowing you to personalise your curriculum and specialise more in either business, technology, or both.

Becoming a business engineer

Economics as its foundation, technology as added value and entrepreneurship as a guideline - this, in short, is the philosophy behind the Belgian academic qualification of 'Business Engineer' (Handelsingenieur / Ingénieur de Gestion, sometimes translated as 'Management Engineer' or 'Commercial Engineer').

Bridge the gap between the different worlds

The idea is to train professionals who are able to understand the jargon and business environment of all of their colleagues, whether they are engineers, economists, lawyers, computer scientists or they have other specialisations. Our graduates can bridge the gap between the different worlds of the many and varying professions in the workforce.

Solid foundation in economics

During the bachelor phase of our degree, which is only offered in Dutch, our students develop a solid foundation in economics and are immersed in business disciplines such as marketing, finance, management and human resource management. This is combined with a thorough grounding in mathematics, statistics and computer science, while a strong basis in science is provided by coursework in physics, chemistry, electronics and technology. Another unique aspect of the business engineer’s education is a strong focus on language skills.

This broad background is the cornerstone of our master’s programme, and all students admitted to the program are expected to have a similar knowledge base.

High-level business programme

Through this programme international undergraduate students have the opportunity to benefit from the expertise of the Solvay Business School without having to attend classes in Dutch. Participation in a high-level business programme in Brussels, the capital of Europe, is a great asset for any student who strives to be prepared for the challenge of management in a globalised world.

Approach

Interdisciplinary

The Master in Business and Technology is a unique interdisciplinary programme with a clear focus on all business aspects of cutting edge technology, offering advanced courses in business, technology and their intersection. The offered technology courses are taught by professors from both the Faculty of Exact Sciences and the Faculty of Engineering Science. Professors of the Faculty of Economic and Social Sciences & Solvay Business School for their part will provide students with highly specialised knowledge in economics and business aspects.

Intercultural

Students in the Master in Business and Technology will meet with peers from diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds while greatly improving their English language skills.

International

All of the courses in the Master in Business and Technology have a distinct international flavour. Due to its all-round and international character, the programme provides students with a multitude of career opportunities after graduation.

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

Three majors

The majors not only deepen the knowledge but also broaden it and offer insight into the selected management domain. In your Master's thesis you will carry out scientific research into a business-relevant or economic subject. The Master's thesis is the conclusion of your degree course. It gives you the opportunity to display your analytical attitude as well as your ability to synthesise and your oral and written communication skills.

1. INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS MANAGEMENT

The programme provides you with an overview of the many different aspects of management of organisations and companies. Are you planning on launching an international business career? Are you eager to work for a company or an organisation that operates on an international scale? Do you like international (strategic) management, international strategic decision making, international marketing, entrepreneurship, business processes and operations? The IBM major is tailored to students seeking a business-oriented, hands-on, critical, and problem-oriented approach to education. Students are challenged to study and work in a multicultural team.

2. BUSINESS INFORMATION MANAGEMENT

For students with a strong interest in the general operation of industrial processes and the related information technology they require. Business information managers lead IT projects and supervise new IT systems. In the world of ICT, three things matter most: the right information shared in the right place with the right people. Students in the BIM major have an eye for both the overall picture and specific details. They have strong social skills, and excel at building bridges between users, managers and technical ICT experts. These are precisely the skills developed in this major. Students in the BIM are interested and, ideally, well-versed in technology, computers and networks. However, the focus is not on hardware or technical aspects, but on developing and evaluating information systems. There is a high demand in the industry for competent people who are willing and able to think creatively and logically about information systems. You will be trained to find solutions quickly and to explain them clearly to users.

3. INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS

The International Relations (IR) major is embedded in the context of global economics and business life. It takes a practical-analytical approach to the study of multinationals

and is embedded in a sound theoretical framework. It covers international management and marketing techniques as well as international socio-economic analysis and monetary economics. Students in the IR major particularly develop insight into the role of governments in international relations and business. The IR major is built on three international pillars: an economic pillar (what is the economic environment in which an international firm operates?); a business pillar (how does an international firm operate in this environment?); and a political/legal pillar (which political and legal aspects does an international firm have to take into account?).

Truly international 

Our MBA will challenge you to meet and work closely with students from other cultures and nationalities. The diversity of our programme is impressive.

Business oriented 

We invite international managers and government officials to share their experiences with students at guest lectures and business seminars held throughout the year.

In the heart of Europe

Learn business where business is done! Brussels is the economic heart of Europe. As a business hub, Brussels has a central position in Europe and it hosts the EU and the NATO, as well as diverse range of international trade and finance organisations.

Brussels is where hundreds of multinational corporations have their head offices and where many important political and economic decisions are made. Your campus is in the middle of this decision-making centre: a head start for launching your career.

Centrally located

The campus is located in the heart of Brussels, only a five-minute walk from Brussels Central train station, with several metro (underground) connections in the immediate vicinity.

Interdisciplinary

Our MBA's interdisciplinary approach prepares you to address and solve business problems by drawing on insights and experiences from multiple disciplines and perspectives - often as a member of a team. In this way, the MBA emulates the real business world and leverages input from a multitude of cultural backgrounds and worldviews.

International experience

The Master of Business Administration is international not only in focus and content, but also in terms of student population. As the language of instruction is English, students from all over the world attend, which allows for intercultural interaction on a daily basis.

If you haven't had the chance to study abroad before, or if you want to have another international experience under your belt, you can add an extra semester abroad to your programme. In that case, apply for a place at one of our many European partners or more limited set of non-European partners. Eligibility and selection depend on your study progress, academic results, your language proficiency and motivation.

Career perspectives

Thanks to your general business background combined with your specialism you as a business administrator can work in a wide range of positions at companies or organisations. The international character of your degree programme is an asset.

The International Business Management major prepares graduates for management positions in finance, administration and commerce. Employment opportunities are numerous and diverse. Many graduates choose to pursue a career in the financial sector or in management consultancy firms.

The Business Information Management major prepares graduates for management positions in ICT. The demand for driven managers with ICT expertise continues to grow. Our graduates go on to positions as business consultants, business process engineers, project leaders, system analysts, functional analysts, information analysts, system designers/administrators, network and data administrators.

The International Relations major prepares graduates for management positions in international organisations, NGOs, government, multinational enterprises and local organisations with a global perspective. Graduates have keen insight into international economic and political realities and are thus also well-positioned for careers in banking and international business.

What is the 'Master of International Business Economics and Management' all about?

 The Master in International Business Economics and Management (MIBEM) is a master program for holders of a degree in a non-business economic or management discipline. It 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.

As a master of science program, MIBEM relies on insights from scientific research. Its primary purpose is not to prepare graduates for an academic career, but to foster an attitude of autonomous, critical and informed reflection in the search for solutions to concrete business problems. The program instills an international and business- and management oriented mindset in individuals educated in diverse backgrounds.

Students who have direct access, can follow the one-year Master's programme. Those who have no direct access, must first follow the 30 credits preparatory programme from September till January and start the Master's programme in February. They can finish the programme in January of the following academic year.

  • is interested in an international business career;
  • feels that a business-oriented, hands-on, critical, interdisciplinary and problem-based learning approach is something for him;
  • understands that working in a multicultural and multidisciplinary team is an asset.

Objectives

Students with no economics background are first, if necessary, introduced to the basics of economics and management in a 30 ECTS preparatory programme.

After the programme a master:

  • Is able to apply microeconomic and macroeconomic insights when analyzing the international business context.
  • Can analyze, interpret, plan, and evaluate business processes, based on scientific knowledge, and -when relevant- with an explicitly international perspective.

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

As a business engineer in information systems engineering you’re still an all-round business engineer: you’re able to analyse and optimize various business processes (marketing, production and logistics, finance,...). You understand how a company works and you take into account the economic, organisational, and human aspects of business. As a business engineer in information systems engineering you also translate these business administration elements into information systems that support the decision-making process. You can consider decisions about information technology against the backdrop of the company as a whole, predict their strategic consequences, and carry out (general) management duties.

The master’s programme shares a number of courses with the Master of Business Economics: Business Engineering. Furthermore, the programme contains a number of required courses on information technology and one optional component of your choice. This optional component allows you to specialise in one particular aspect of ICT:

 Optional components:

  • design, infrastructure and big data
  • data science
  • information systems engineering and technology and entrepreneurship
  • information systems engineering and man-machine communication
  • information systems engineering and production/logistics
  • information systems engineering and marketing
  • information systems engineering and accountancy/finance/risk

 Projects, work placements or the master's thesis give you the opportunity to gain experience in the corporate environment that will later become your professional habitat. And for those of you who enjoy looking beyond borders the faculty offers quite a few possibilities to follow part of your training at a partner institution abroad. More information is available on the website.

Is this the right programme for me?

  • You want to understand and optimize the ins and outs of companies and the relevant processes.
  • You have sufficient knowledge of IT – without necessarily being an expert – and you are very interested in the business world, so that you can connect corporate activity and the digital world.
  • You enjoy detecting problems and offering solutions with regard to the information systems in organisations, taking into account the latest digital developments.
  • You have excellent abstract reasoning powers, sound communication skills and a vivid interest in innovative developments.
  • Once graduated, you are a real information technology professional at an academic level. You combine in-depth knowledge of information technology with a thorough understanding of and affinity with business administration.

Career perspectives

Information technology has revolutionized the business world. Business and information systems engineers usually start their career in business and/or IT consulting. They can also take up more traditional management duties, as they have the ability to design, manage

and improve business processes, services and decisions in a digital world. Boasting a variety of skills, business and information systems engineers are much sought-after by a wide range of companies for various positions and sectors in Belgium and abroad.

Typical job titles include business analyst, analytics specialist, business intelligence analyst, big data specialist, operations manager, fintech specialist, customer intelligence director, fraud expert, compliance officer, IT manager, and chief information officer.

About the programme

The MSc in International Business (formally known as MSc. in Management Science) is a 2-year, full-time programme organised by the Solvay Business School of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. It targets students - both Belgian and foreign - with academic bachelor’s degrees in Business Economics or Management who are looking for an English-language master’s programme with a distinct international and multidisciplinary flavour, and in an international setting.

Doing business in an international context

The basic concept behind the selection of the courses in the programme is straightforward. There are essentially three types of courses: courses that deal with today's international economic context, advanced business courses, and courses on the intersection of these two fields; that is, courses that are all about 'doing business in an international context', including a hands-on internship in a (multinational) company.

The courses that introduce students to today's European/international/globalised economic environment are placed in the first semester of the first year. Courses that improve students' business knowledge are mainly in the second semester of the first year.

Personalise your curriculum

The first year consists of compulsory courses. But in the second year, apart from the Master’s thesis and the internship, there are only two compulsory courses, namely Corporate Social Responsibility, Multinational Strategic Planning and a brand new advanced course on international economics. This allows students to personalise their curriculum by picking elective courses.

Learn from professionals from all over the world...

Our professors have solid publication records and increasingly come from different corners of the world. In addition to our eminent academics, we are proud to welcome, as members of our teaching faculty, numerous business professionals and practitioners from every sector of business and the economy, including industry and services, as well as the private and public sectors in both Belgium and Europe. Their knowledge and experience cover every field of management and business (strategy, finance, marketing, leadership, technology, IT, etc.).

...specialised in various fields of research

We have also created a number of research Chairs, financed by corporate and private donors. Students have the opportunity to attend lectures given by the holders of these research Chairs, all of whom are highly respected and internationally known professors specialising in various fields of research.

What is the 'Master of Information Management' all about?

This programme offers students with a Bachelor's or Master's degree advanced non-technical training in information management, with an emphasis on the efficient and effective application and management of information technology in various business contexts (e.g. finance, marketing, HR, production and logistics, etc.). Following basic training in technology, the programme explores specific management issues in greater depth, particularly in order to develop the skills required to analyse information needs, design and manage information systems and fine-tune an IT strategy as an integral part of an overall business strategy.

The key focus is the preliminary design needed to develop and set up an information system. In completing your Master's thesis, you can apply these skills within a specific business context. Finally, a wide range of electives enables you to either explore specific areas in greater depth or gain a broader understanding through a multidisciplinary approach.

Objectives

This programme presents a non-technical curriculum in information management. It focuses on the effective and efficient application and management of information technology in a business setting. First, a basic technological background is offered, after which the management aspects are elaborated in more detail. The programme aims at developing skills in analysing information needs, the modelling and management of information systems and the alignment of information technology strategy with business strategy. Hence, the main focus is on the early phases of the information system development cycle. By means of the master project, skills acquired throughout the programme are applied in a concrete business setting. Finally, the electives provide the opportunity to explore particular aspects in more depth or to broaden the scope by taking one or more multidisciplinary courses.

By the end of the programme, students will have acquired:

  • a broad and general knowledge of business information systems;
  • the skills to independently formulate a strategy concerning information systems management accompanying an existing company strategy (business, non-profit, government);
  • the skills to analyse and model the needs concerning information systems and to follow up on the design, implementation and management of these systems;
  • the skills to evaluate technology independently and to choose a technical solution in accordance with the company strategy;
  • the skills to independently recognise the economic aspects of a choice for a particular system;
  • the skills to judge and optimise the quality of data, processes and decisions;
  • the skills to lead and manage projects on information systems in a multidisciplinary team of analysts, designers and users;
  • a professional and scientific attitude in the field of information systems.

Career perspectives

In the business world, there is a great demand for IT specialists with highly developed management skills. Our graduates are trained to gain leverage within a company through the strategic use of technology. The analysis and management of information, knowledge, processes and systems, in line with an overall business strategy, play a bridging role between computer science and business. Qualities such as strong communication skills, teamwork and group management are therefore more essential than mere technological expertise. Our graduates pursue careers as information analysts, project leaders and information technology strategists.

  • An active and specialized knowledge of the detailed features of economic problems in some specific fields of interest.
