The Business and Information Systems Engineering programme seeks to train multidisciplinary, forward-looking managers who can use information and communication technology to organise, optimise and lead businesses in a rapidly globalising world. These managers of the future will be able to rely on a sound quantitative training in business economics, with business and information systems engineering as a key spearhead, and firmly grounded in the humanities as well as in engineering science.
The Business and Information Systems Engineering programme offers an advanced quantitative and science-based training in business economics and its various business disciplines (accounting and finance, marketing, production and logistics). It is analytically underpinned by insights from engineering science (mathematics and statistics, information, energy, problem-solving and designing) but also inspired by insights from the humanities as the basis for a unique interdisciplinary approach to business management. A thorough study of business economics is combined with a training in information and communication technology (ICT). The degree programme focuses on the creation, integration, management and use of information in a business context to support business management in a digital world.
Duration: 2 years (full-time), 120 ECTS
EEA nationals and Non-EEA nationals who reside in Belgium under a valid residence permit can follow less than 60 ECTS per academic year and accordingly spread their studies in several years. This possibility needs to be discussed with a study career consultant. Note that there are no part-time, evening or weekend courses organized for this category of students.
