• Brussels, international city and European capital

In the heart of Europe, just 1h20 by train from Paris, 1h30 from Amsterdam, and 1h50 from London and Cologne, Brussels offers all the advantages of a capital city and the quality of life of a large and lively town. Brussels is home to all the major European institutions. It is the official seat of the EU and many other political and economic decision-making entities and boasts a growing number of businesses, organisations and international experts. The long tradition of hospitality and exchange in Europe's greenest capital means visitors and residents alike can enjoy a broad mix of world food and music, while culture vultures can choose from a host of museums and shows.

• The Career Service

SBS-EM offers personal development activities - which provide practical guidance and individual coaching concerning the approach to the job market, workshops, writing a CV and application letters, interview simulations, etc. - and corporate events (lectures and seminars) with prominent business figures, presenting companies and their employment opportunities. Over the years, the SBS-EM has developed a network of recruiters and has established contacts with companies throughout Belgium and around the world.

• International Programme

With globalization now a reality, the School considers the opportunity to live and study abroad as being fundamental in the learning experience of the masters’ students. The school provides many opportunities for mobility: the international exchange programme (one semester abroad - more than hundred partners), several double degrees (one year abroad), the growing QTEM networked master (two semesters abroad). Living and studying abroad is the best way for students to prepare themselves for a professional life and an international environment.
