Institute for European Business Administration
The programme in European Business was set up following a survey whereby international entrepreneurs were asked which particular skills European managers should have. This survey made it painfully clear that their demands for graduates who can cope with the European single market are not met.
The unique curriculum reflects the particular needs of the corporate world. IEBA’s postgraduate highlights the emerging opportunities for international and local enterprises on the old continent. Courses focus on the practical aspects of every day management and marketing : European Trade Law, setting up of joint ventures, investment opportunities in the EU member states, managerial implications of the internal market, free movement of capital and goods, international tenders, EU subsidies, export support, etc.
Graduates acquire the advanced expertise to participate in, and take advantage of, the EU business environment. The programme is considered to be a springboard to an international career in Belgium or abroad.
The European Business degree is the only postgraduate programme entirely dedicated to the EU corporate world, which is accessible to most Bachelors and Masters. Foreknowledge of European business is not required.
The exceptional set-up of this program was made possible by a strong and extensive network of privileged contacts we maintain with Euro-officials and leading businessmen.
“During my job interview we kept on speaking about what I had learned at the Institute... I can’t tell you how much I’ve used what I’ve been taught.”
“The programme, professors and subject matters exceeded my expectations. A very well organised programme, intelligently run. I would recommend it.”
“... more challenging than I expected,but therefore also more valuable.”
“... a very well prepared programme, covering a great deal of material ranging widely in scope. The faculty presented us with unique insight, probably not available elsewhere.”

“based on and aimed at situations in the real world...courses are easy to read and use as a kind of manual...simply things one just has to know”
