This English taught evening programme meets both the needs of young university bachelors and masters without a business degree and professionals without a master degree to increase their managerial insights. It is a one-year evening programme for students without prior Management education.

Know-how for management

The programme offers both Belgian and international students the skills and know-how needed for management positions in a broad array of sectors. In detail, the programme prepares you for management positions in international companies where a good knowledge of English will be a bonus.

The MSc in Management offers a broad-based view of the field of business and economics. Particular attention is paid to instilling you with a due sense of economic intuition and vision, required as a foundation for adequate management.

The courses are selected with an international and varied audience in mind. This implies that mere Belgian topics are not studied and that all courses have an international focus.

Strengths

In the MSc in Management programme you will get more time to work on your Master thesis. Because the examinations of the second semester are scheduled in the month of April (in the weeks after the spring break), there will be no courses given in the last weeks of the academic year. This way you will have more time to finalise your Master thesis.

There are opportunities to spread the programme for students who wish to combine their studies with a (full-time) job.

The preparatory programme is obligatory for all students and can be combined with the Master programme within the same academic year. Only holders of an academic degree in engineering with a minor (of minimum 18 ECTS credits) in management are exempted from the preparatory programme.

Curriculum

The programme consists of the following courses:
- Strategic Marketing
- Supply Chain Management
- Human Resources Management
- Management and Strategy
- Financial and Managerial Accounting
-Corporate Finance and Investment Analysis
- Informatics for Management
- Master Thesis

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.

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 this the right programme for me?

 The ideal prospective student:

  • has obtained an academic bachelor's or master's degree in a non-business economics or management discipline;
  • is eager to broaden his/her horizon by acquiring knowledge of business economics and management;
  • aims to enhance his/her career opportunities by acquiring general management skills and business knowledge;
  • 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.
  • Understands and can critically assess how societal and international evolutions affect the business world.
  • Can identify the risks and challenges of doing business in an international environment, and can provide solutions for dealing with them.
  • Possesses managerial and entrepreneurial skills, applied within an international business context, with attention to social and ethical aspects.
  • Is able to work on a project basis in a multidisciplinary team, whether or not internationally established.
  • Can autonomously conceive, plan, execute and communicate a scientifically grounded research project as a beginning practitioner and with an international mindset.
  • Recognizes the importance of lifelong learning and the need for continuing education.

Career perspectives

The MIBEM programme prepares students for management positions in a number of sectors. Obviously, your personal interest and prior education play a major role in your post-graduation path. Our graduates find employment in a broad range of sectors, including purchasing, sales, marketing, production control, planning and budgeting, financial management and ICT. Other graduates go on to a career in banking and insurance, become civil servants, work in one of the European institutions, or set up their own company.
