Academic tools

Solvay Brussels School’s Accelerated Management Programme is delivered by academics and experts in their field through a wide variety of learning practices including: self-awareness, interactive lectures, short classroom exercises, case studies, group discussions, role play, and many practical examples. By lifelong learning with our Executive MBA participants, you increase your networking opportunities and widen the exchange of good practices.

The Accelerated Management Programme (AMP) fully commits to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGS). The SDGs are a blue-print to make our planet more sustainable by 2030. In most modules, your professors will bring you up to date on the latest aspect of how to do business in a sustainable way.

For each of the 6 modules, individual exams or group assignments are organised to enable you to check your personal progress.

After completing the AMP, why not continue your transformative journey by stepping right into Solvay Executive MBA ? As the AMP covers Management Essentials, you can start your Executive MBA at Level 2: Leadership Essentials. Solvay Brussels School even offers a discount on tuition to all AMP graduates who directly enroll in our Executive MBA.

The pillars of learning

All learnings of the Accelerated Management Programme are based on key characteristics. They involve maximum exposure to up-to-date fundamental management concepts and business trends, to help you understand everyday corporate challenges and needs.

A varied schedule of lectures, case-study discussions, and group exercises engage you in problem-solving, exploring new ideas, and developing your creative and critical thinking to craft the best solutions. A set of management tools and key resources (e-books, online references, cases, articles, etc.) are provided so that you can apply immediately and long after the programme’s completion.


“I hold a legal position, and I wanted to broaden my vision of the company, to better manage its components and better assist it via the opinions I give. The content of the AMP programme attracted me with its very rich content, its international dimension, the quality of its participants, and the fact that it was perfectly compatible with my professional life. I’ve been able to put directly into practice what I learned there as part of Sodexo's global expansion. The AMP has enabled me to better understand the philosophy behind this type of evolution and communicate it in a coherent way to my team.”

"For me, opting for the accelerated programme was a matter of timing. I was about to be promoted, and I wanted this new stage in my career to be accompanied by solid training. The Solvay programme, whith a proper evaluation at the end, offered more value than similar programmes on the market."

"The Accelerated Management Programme gave me a complete picture of the knowledge and qualifications needed to become a good manager. In addition, it gave me some great networking opportunities. My company has now asked me to start up a business in Africa − so I can definitely rely on the variety of skills learned during the programme."

“It’s important to keep learning if we want to be ready to act on the next challenges and career opportunities and bring added value to our employer. The AMP enables you to make the right decisions in order to meet performance ambitions. It helps you build full understanding of companies’ priorities and the impact on different departments within the current market situation. It helps you think long-term. Studying at Solvay was my own initiative. And now my manager has offered me a new job with more responsibility.”

"In order to shift from a technical to a managerial position, I was looking for a general management training that was lacking in my scientific background (...).

The modules are taught by experienced people from the private sector. The Accelerated Management Programme provides you with numerous networking opportunities, an eye-opening experience on the possibilities ahead, and a sound basis in the pillars of management that I intend to develop in my career."

"I wanted to take a step forward in my career and decided that in order to do so, it would be essential to broaden my knowledge in different areas of management expertise.

The classes are the perfect introduction to the different areas and you get to know people from many different sectors. The Accelerated Management Programme also offers the necessary flexibility that people need when working full-time."
