Apart from the countless group projects, presentations and company visits, the programme has allowed me to develop essential entrepreneurial abilities, master key managerial concepts and build the right team-player mindset to cope with a continuously changing environment. I’ve had the honour to be carefully guided in creating my own venture with a fellow student, to lead a group-based three-month internship at a fast-growing digital marketing scale-up in Brussels and to be part of a consulting project for EY.

Solvay Brussels School is well known all around Europe for its learning methodology which is very constructive. It helped me become more structured and able to go straight to the point.

What makes this programme stand out is the school’s international and multicultural environment and the fact that our lecturers are people with outstanding experiences.
