About the Programmes

Three distinct Masters degrees for post-university pre-professional experience candidates who want to untie their management skills in the most progressive business environment. Delivered in English to an international student body.

Masters of General Management (Ghent or Leuven)

This programme is designed for young and ambitious university graduates. The courses are practice-based and cover all management disciplines, with a special focus on management skills. This programme was organised for the first time in 1959 and is widely acclaimed in national and international business circles. In 2005 it was among 10 other pre-experience Masters programmes worldwide to first receive an accreditation from the Association of MBAs. The curriculum provides the knowledge, skills and techniques needed to address a wide range of business-related issues and will give you access to top executive jobs.

Masters in Financial Management

This programme is more than just a series of independent courses. Since all financial problems present many facets, it is a prerequisite that students should learn to integrate the distinct financial management techniques and theories. Integrative cases, a business game, a valuation project and the in-company project provide students with the skills required to integrate concepts and techniques. In addition, the programme covers essential management skills such as meeting or presentation techniques, managing negotiations and the like. We believe that our approach can make you excel as tomorrow’s successful financial manager.

Masters in Marketing Management

In an ever-changing Europe, this practice-based programme aims to prepare creative, talented and ambitious university graduates for a successful career in marketing. We offer our students not only the theoretical foundations but also - and mainly - the skills needed to apply these marketing concepts. We are as much, if not more, interested in doing than in thinking! A mix of negotiation management practice, oral and written reporting, meetings, discussions in small groups or working against tight deadlines will optimise your marketing expertise.
