Why AMS?

The Executive MBA at Antwerp Management School is so much more than just another master’s degree. Our EMBA stands for academic knowledge as well as personal skills development, for a comprehensive international experience as well as better career opportunities, for global friendships for life as well as personalized attention. This EMBA will make you a very complete person ready to face today’s challenges and not afraid to go after new opportunities. Here are 10 very good reasons to join our EMBA:

6 reasons to start your EMBA at AMS

1. Life changing support for your personal journey

The small class size, our fully qualified professional coaches and a unique personal development program support your journey through the EMBA and through life. This is why our EMBA was n°1 in the Financial times ranking 2019.

  • Individual Coaching – leading to your customized career plan
  • Small classes - allowing personal attention and easy access to faculty
  • Group learning – leading to self-awareness
  • Community Project – a truly life-changing experience

2. An international education unlike any other in the market

N° 1 international EMBA in Belgium. Our level of internationalization in the design and delivery of the Executive MBA far surpasses that available in any other similar BENELUX EMBA program. Perhaps this is why the Financial Times rates the “degree of internationalization” of our EMBA to be one of the top 20 in the world, and why 1/3d of our participants in Antwerp come from outside Belgium.

If your ambition includes the dream of building an international career, either as an expatriate or “home-based” with international responsibilities, you will discover that we offer the best preparation available.

→ N° 1 international EMBA in Belgium
→ A total bi-locational EMBA in Antwerp and Moscow - allowing the integration of Eastern and Western Europe
→ International seminars in Guangzhou (China), MIT Boston (USA) and Porto (Portugal)
→ International faculty delivering a global content
→ A global network of MBA peers

“It is an exceptional idea to bring together student groups from Belgium, Russia and China in Quangzhou, the resulting interaction vividly shows the differences that we have and at the same time it shows how much we have in common” Valeriy M., alumnus

3. Solid general management training

  • The Core Modules – a solid general management and business foundation
  • The Master Consulting Project – putting learning into action

‘‘The assignments really gave me much better insight into my company and the market in which we operated. For one of these, I wrote a paper about our Human Resources rewards policies concluding with some recommendations to change the existing system dramatically. It was nice to see that, 1.5 years later, they did indeed make these changes.” Jan D.R., alumnus

4. Yearly choice of Innovative management topics

  • Deepening your creativity and curiosity
  • Connecting with AMS alumni into a real business network

5. Antwerp Management School, high ranked and triple accredited

  • The Financial Times Rankings – flexible, dynamic, entrepreneurial

    Some of the highlights of the most recent Financial Times rankings:
    → N°1 Executive MBA in Belgium
    → 50% salary increase 5 years after starting an EMBA
    → N°1 in Belgium and N°21 in the world for the extent of its international content in the program
    → N°1 for the most senior, experienced participants in an EMBA in the BeNeLux.
    → N°1 in salary levels of our EMBA graduates in the BeNeLux.
    → N°10 in the world for Corporate Social Responsibility.

  • Triple Accreditation – one of a select few with this designation

  • Mission

    The mission of AMS is to develop three key aspects of future business and society leaders:
    → Self-awareness
    → A global mindset
    → Societal Consciousness

    The design of the EMBA is based on this mission leading to our alumni being educated and well-rounded leaders capable of making commercial decisions that take wider societal needs and implications into account.
