In its continuing mission to foster internationalism, the Solvay Brussels School of Economics & Management at ULB in Brussels has launched two new English-language Bachelor programmes.

Registrations are already open for both the Bachelor in Business Engineering and the Bachelor in Economics, which start in September 2024.

The initiative honours the legacy of the school’s founder, Ernest Solvay, and aims to attract international students to the renowned business school.

Previously offered in French, these programmes address the challenge of attracting international students to Master’s programs in business engineering.

Dean Bruno van Pottelsberghe said: “Solvay Brussels School remains true to Ernest Solvay's visionary spirit by adapting its Bachelor's programmes to meet current challenges and provide a world-class education.

The Bachelor in Business Engineering shapes future entrepreneurs and leaders with a deep understanding of economic, technological and sustainability challenges. It combines multidisciplinary approaches with rigorous standards and enhances language skills in English, French and Dutch or German.

Vice Dean Catherine Dehon commented: “Our Bachelor in Business Engineering equips students with the skills needed to accurate the transition toward a sustainable world.

The Bachelor in Economics focuses on applied economics and quantitative methods, blending theory and practice over three years. It emphasises sustainable development and includes courses in law, humanities, and management, as well opportunities to study English, French, Dutch or German.

According to Academic Director Germain Van Bever: “The Bachelor in Economics prepares students to tackle global economic challenges, fostering intellectual growth and competence.”

These new international bachelor programmes are an extension of the existing French-language bachelors that Solvay includes in its curriculum.
