Master in Management and Business Engineering

The four Universities of the ‘Louvain’ Academy (UCL, FUNDP, FUCaM and FUSL) have jointly set up the ‘Louvain School of Management’. This is one of the largest schools of management in Belgium with almost 2500 students and 250 members of academic and scientific staff. In addition to executive education programmes, namely an International Executive MBA in association with ICHEC Brussels Management School, and a doctoral programme, the Louvain School of Management delivers master's degrees (120 credits) in Management (MSG) and in Business engineering (MIG). Strongly rooted in business life, these masters allow students to taylor their programme through a wide choice of specialisation modules, some of which are taught entirely in English.

Programme structure

The programme includes 90 credits of common core curriculum (20 thesis credits, 60 course credits, and 10 credits for an internship) and 30 credits of specialised courses structured in modules of 15 credits.

Mobility and international openness

The organisation of the curriculum stimulates students to follow a part of their programme in another institution within the LSM.
Students can spend the first semester of the second Master's year abroad, generally in the framework of one of the numerous interuniversity exchange programmes (Erasmus or other) or in a company, through an internship (in Belgium or abroad).
The network of relations between the university and various institutions and businesses abroad allows a wide range of visits and internships to be proposed and courses to be taught by foreign visiting professors.
The specialisations, particularly those taught in English, have also been designed to attract foreign students, especially into areas that are not widely covered elsewhere in Europe.
