The Advanced Master in Innovation & Strategic Management will provide students with the tools, skills and mindset needed to deal with the challenge of fast-evolving organisations. It helps students to develop their entrepreneurial abilities, to analyse complex challenges and influence their environment early on in their careers. It covers the main management disciplines (strategy, marketing, finance, project management, etc.) with a focus on the future. It embraces innovation in all its aspects, from technological, thanks to a real understanding of social media, new products and services, to new business models and organisational forms.

(Student Profile)


“My perception of the business world, the willingness to start with the right foot my professional career and my own start-up business in the future, have improved enormously since I started my Innovation and Strategic Management Master at Solvay.
As an engineer, I wanted to complement my technical background with management skills, and to attend courses about innovation and entrepreneurship, topics that are changing the traditional mindsets, inviting you to "think out of the box”.

As a foreign student in Brussels, what I like the most of the city is its diversity. Home of the European Parliament, with a lot of different nationalities and things to do, (culture, shows, festivals, etc.) the city allows you to enter into an enriching multicultural atmosphere, enhancing your stay in Belgium.

I want to also highlight the quality of my classmates, who have become my friends, and our international Faculty, with really good professors, reason why Solvay is a distinguished Business School in Europe.”

(Student Profile)


The diverse, international and relatively small class size, brings a variety of viewpoints and ways of thinking to class discussions and group projects truly challenging me to think differently.

Thanks to Solvay's numerous, quality networking opportunities, I was able to land an interview and job offer after the first event!

Unlike most traditional theory-based programs, the real-world experience the Solvay professors bring to the table offers a very practical, dynamic dimension to the material.

(Student Profile)


I truly believe this Master allows me to broaden my horizon. It is an opportunity to learn from great professors with superior knowledge. Moreover, the many group works and projects allow me to gain important soft skills such as teamwork and communication. Overall, this Master contributed to my personal development and I feel more ready to kick off my career.
