1. The Business School made in Europe, in the heart of Brussels Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management attracts the best Belgian and European candidates because it is the only business school attached to a university − the ULB − to offer Executive Education programmes in Brussels.

2. Business education connected to the professional world: The IT Management Education, like all of Solvay Brussels School’s programmes, follows the evolution of the market year after year to respond to the problems that you face in your daily work.

3. First-person learning: Case studies, debating sessions, rich media, simulations ... At the Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management, we like to place you at the heart of learning − utilising the immersive approach to make the content of the training more stimulating and directly applicable to real conditions.

"This education provides the perfect fit with business reality. It enables you to link together IT, strategy and management and provides the soft skills you’ll need to tackle computing issues with users and managers alike. The modules that make up the programme are aligned with the most up-to-date certifications, making it as relevant as possible to what is actually happening within the industry. Last but not least, the courses are delivered by enthusiastic and ever-available faculty, which motivates participants even more."
"In addition to my DPO education at Solvay Brussels School, I was enrolled in the Executive Master in Information Security and Cybersecurity. It enables me to join the cybersecurity team of Deloitte Belgium and to integrate the International Privacy Professional Members of the firm.
Moreover, I strongly believe that the synergy between those two tracks gave me enough confidence to engage more amongst both security and privacy experts.
I am glad to notice every day that the knowledge acquired during the sessions help me constantly addressing accurately my client expectations."
"Solvay education helped me to progress and extend my knowledge, stimulate my critical thinking, acquire a transversal thinking to perform better in my daily activities. Solvay pushed me to complete 5 certifications: COBIT, ITIL, Prince2 and now TOGAFF because I was so impressed by the M1-Application build and management.”
"This education provided me with the right knowledge, experience, networking, and confidence to kick-start my career and to achieve the professional and personal objectives which I had set myself. I felt invigorated, empowered and assertive to grow and to do what I really wanted."
"On being appointed Director at DG DIGIT (Directorate for IT Security) for the European Commission, the IT & Information Security Management Education helped me to get up to speed on concepts and techniques in IS and IT Security Management. The course is demanding but the content and quality of the courses were on target for my needs. Also I very much appreciated the strong practitioner-based nature of the course."
I recently completed my IT Management Education at Solvay Brussels School with the DPO education.

Two specific IT Management Education modules have brought to my knowledge and expertise in Compliance, Governance, the G2-IT Governance workshop and in IT Risk the G3-IT Risk and legal concerns.

"These modules structures very well the approach to follow when facing major compliance transformation programs and fulfilling the need to have a methodology to the identify the gaps and in reaching defined protection targets which any DPO is facing in his day to day activities."
"The Education at Solvay Brussels School gave me the chance to open a new paradigm in my professional career. I would recommend to anyone interested in the challenge of a new DPO role.
The 'Information Security Management' module is the core of the security management practices; it provides the major frameworks and bodies of knowledge, very useful in regards of GDPR Art32. The 'IT Risk and Legal Concerns' module is fundamental for the DPO role.
The 'Business Transformation' module enhances the skills for business transformation, change management and project/program management, definitively a solid and complete background for the DPO daily activities."
"The GDPR DPO education from the Solvay Business School has given me a solid background to enable me to best deploy my organization on May 25th, 2018.
The course was given by experts that highlighted the different aspects of the impact of the GDPR.
The wide range of topics covered Information Security, GDPR articles, Marketing, Cross-Border information flows and more. I strongly recommend this course to anyone needing to acquire practical insights, as it combines theory and practice on both the legal and operational needs for a successful implementation.
The strong partnership between Solvay and the Privacy Commission gave me as a student the all-around view I expected."
