The basic concept of the programme is straightforward. The first semester of the first year introduces students to today’s European, international, and globalised economic environment, and the second semester improves their business knowledge. The programme culminates in the second year which focuses on “doing business in an international context”, including a hands-on internship in a (multinational) company.
The bulk of the compulsory courses has been placed in the first year. The first semester takes place entirely on the campus of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and, as mentioned, introduces students to the European integration process, its economic and financial legal system, and the broader international trade theories and competition strategies. The second semester is taught by Université Libre de Bruxelles faculty on the campus of the Université Libre de Bruxelles and offers courses in Advanced Marketing, Advanced Accounting, Advanced Finance, Leadership & Personal Development, and Quantitative Methods for Business.
In the second year, apart from the Master’s thesis and the internship, there are only two compulsory courses, Corporate Social Responsibility and Case Studies in International Strategy. This allows students to personalise their curriculum. Students can choose three courses from a list of eight in the international profile and are also allowed to choose one major elective. Courses in the international profile range from Global Banking to a course on IFRS and a seminar on Euromarketing.
