Student Profile(s)

Gaia Venegoni

I wil remember my experience as a student of Economic Diplomacy at the Brussels Diplomatic Academy (BDA) as one of the most formative of my life.
The choice of classes is very broad, and it is an asset indeed, as it provides students with the capacity of understanding both the needs of public and private institutions. This is a quality that makes your profile stand out and brings an interesting (and quite rare) differentiation to your resume. I can confidently say this as a young professional who got a full-time contract in a Belgian leading company after completing there the academic internship provided by the BDA.

Anna Cruyt

“I started studying at the Brussels Diplomatic Academy to broaden my knowledge and gain new skills. I didn't expect the network and friends that come with it. I was one of the few Belgians in the classes; my fellow students came from around the world because they wanted to be in the heart of Europe. Most of them stayed in Brussels after graduating and are working in the European Institutions, international trade or other interesting places.”
