Core Curriculum

Corporate Finance

A general understanding of the financial accounting system is a must for anyone entering the business world. This course takes you through the basics and refines your knowledge to the aspects that are most important in your role as a manager. You will learn how to make decisions to maximize the value of your business and be provided with various analytical tools to assess and manage the efficiency of your business. A financially thriving business is within reach.

International Business

Globalization has brought as many advantages as disadvantages to the trading market. A wonderful opportunity for one company could be a solid disruption for another. This course introduces you to the international business environment, covering all the conditions for participating in international trade, the factors and actors involved in that environment, and the regulations you must meet.

Global Strategic Management

Strategic management is the skill to keep your company relevant and resilient in an ever-changing world. These classes focus on both the content of strategy and the strategy formation process in a global context. Whatever strategic issue is presented to you - at home or abroad - after this course you will know exactly where to start.

Business in the Global Political Economy

International business is always subject to the political context of the countries between which you are setting up a cooperation. How do political systems shape the global economy and vice versa? You'll find out through a thorough study of interactions between markets, politics and economic theory.

International Negotiations

Negotiation skills are integral to success in international business. After a fundamental exploration of modern negotiation research, you will engage in important current or historical negotiations yourself. You will analyze your own skills and establish your own learning path to become a better negotiator, with the help of concrete tools, case studies and your fellow students.

Global Marketing

What exactly does marketing mean to an organization? You'll find the answer in this course, which teaches you to apply marketing concepts and strategies to different countries and cultures. By the end, you'll know the strategic importance of marketing management, how to address the issues it raises and what role it plays in modern, international business plans.

Global Supply Chain Management

In this course, you will gain an overview of international supply chain and logistics management, combined with practical applications to learn to link the right concepts and tools to the right issue. As an executive, you will be well-prepared for the dynamic decision-making that multicultural business management demands.

Doing Business in India

One of the three destinations that make this Master's program special is the trip to India, where you will be fully immersed in South Asian heritage and business culture. A mix of classroom lectures, company visits and interviews with business leaders gives you a full understanding of the economic ecosystem. Add in a few fun excursions, and you'll return to Belgium with a rich understanding of local customs and business principles. The perfect basis for later professional collaborations.

Cross-Cultural Management For Social Impact

On a unique trip to Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegre, you will work with fellow Brazilian students and local, social organizations to create a direct, positive impact for the community. The extensive contact with numerous Brazilian entrepreneurs, tech start-ups and business stakeholders will help you form a postcolonial perspective essential for further cross-cultural projects. And of course, we will make time for a party too!

Master Project

Inspired by the beautiful trips and impressive courses? With your Master Project, you'll put all your new knowledge into practice. You will choose a company with an international business case to delve into and start looking for workable solutions. You will not only complete the master employing the total package of intercultural management skills, tools and frameworks you encountered along the way, but you also take a big step towards the workplace.

Note: This curriculum is subject to change.

Company Practice Seminar

This course introduces you to the complex world of global management and European business partnerships. In an interactive setting, you and your fellow students will tackle a wide variety of management problems. Good preparation, active participation and a critical attitude are the perfect recipe for successfully completing this seminar.

Electives

In addition to the standard curriculum, you also have the opportunity to enrich your studies with electives, in the form of an intensive week of classes, entirely devoted to a topic that is relevant and interesting to you. We always provide an extensive choice between topics from the current geopolitical climate, relevant world news and future-proof insights.

To give you an idea, this list shows some of the electives from previous years:

  • Digital Transformation
  • Designing Business Models for Future Growth
  • Geopolitical Challenges
  • Emerging Asian Markets
  • International Healthcare Management
  • Organizing for the Digital Future

Global Leadership

Your personal development is just as important as the technical knowledge you will gain this year. Therefore, this module challenges you to get to know yourself better: What is your personality like? How do you work with others? What career goals do you want to pursue? This valuable awareness and the soft skills that go with it will strengthen you as a person to take the next professional step and put you in a good light with recruiters.

Cross-Cultural Management for Social Impact

1 year, 3 destinations - that is the slogan of the Master in Global Management. A promise that we not only deliver on with impressive trips to India and Brazil, but that we also link customized courses and projects to. An important part of this are the Global Impact Projects (GIPs) in which you tackle a social challenge with an international team, with a concrete positive impact for local organizations, communities or regions. At the same time, you sharpen and train your responsible, creative and analytical mind as a future manager.
