What does this course contain?

Just over a third of your Business Management degree focuses on your specialisation.

Start with the fundamentals – accounting, cross-cultural communication, economics, law, marketing, logistics and trade. 

Now discover how entrepreneurial you really are as we introduce your specialisation. Entrepreneurs recognise a good opportunity when they see one, so seize the chance to launch a business venture with a team.

A 10-week internship follows in year two. Soak up life working for a young start-up. What better preparation for your own business? This is as close as it gets. Focus on start-up strategy, business management, and the international business scene as you grow your skillset.

Being entrepreneurial is the bedrock of your final year. Support an international start-up with a hands-on project before setting your own business in motion. You do so, supported by a KdG mentor, and an entrepreneur that you have recruited as a coach.

Your campus

You will study at our Groenplaats campus in the heart of historic Antwerp, overlooking the main square and cathedral and a short stroll to the shopping precinct on the Meir.

Your lectures will mostly take place here within the faculty of Management & Information Technology. Drop into the library for some quiet study time, get together for group work in The View, or relax in the cafeteria and catch-up with course mates.

The campus enjoys excellent bus and tram links, so getting around the city is straightforward. And with Antwerpen-Centraal station just a short ride away, it means Brussels, Amsterdam, Paris and London are all within easy reach.
