Need advice in selecting the right program? I'm here to help.

Research indicates that family businesses are of major importance for the Antwerp economy. Antwerp Management School’s basic pillars – self-awareness, a global citizen’s perspective and societal consciousness – are tangible in the rights and obligations of the family and their business on the one hand and the focus on the entrepreneur’s personality and individual talents on the other. We are happy to share this expertise through courses, events, research and blog posts.
