Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management, ULB
Avenue Franklin Roosevelt 42, 1050 Bruxelles, Belgium
Let us start with one of the school’s most important assets: its entrepreneurial and motivated student body wich organises event such as the Solvay Business Game, the largest European on-site business game. It gathered 400 students from around the globe, and is fully organized by the students. This event is only one example, amongst many others, that illustrates the importance of having creative and entrepreneurial students in our institution. But the secret formula of the school is actually more complex than that: it involves a strong focus on quantitative skills, a large number of practitioners sharing their expertise with the students, the will to exploit synergies between economics and management disciplines, high level research activities performed by our full-time faculty, a democratic governance involving all our stakeholders in decision-making, the access to great complementary assets provided by the other faculties of the Université libre de Bruxelles, and a permanent focus on quality improvement, internationalisation and innovation. Two double degrees with universities in France and in China will allow selected students to spend one year abroad, and graduate with two official diplomas. With the newly created QTEM (Quantitative Techniques for Economics and Management) networked master, initiated by the school, students may carry out two exchange programmes over one year, in international high quality institutions. In order to attract more students from abroad, the school has launched a new series of postgraduate specialized masters. Our flagship master programmes now offer the option of completing up to six months of credited internship abroad. Four centres have been created over the years: iCite is a multidisciplinary research centre focusing on innovation, technology and education. ECARES specializes in economics and statistics. CEB is a research centre with an expertise in management and multi-disciplinary research, and DULBEA focuses mainly on applied microeconomics. In a nutshell, high quality stakeholders and a distinct orientation towards innovation and internationalization in our teaching and research services have led to the strong reputation and excellent performance of the Solvay Brussels School, as witnessed by its Financial Times rankings, its research rankings (REPEC) and its EQUIS accreditation. Philip Vergauwen Dean of the Solvay Brussels School Mission More than one hundred years ago, our founder Ernest Solvay, defined the school's mission as follows: “The mission of the Solvay Business School is to train men and women who are capable of selecting, initiating and managing.” By and large, this mission has remained unchanged. But it has now been extended with the creation of the Solvay Brussels School of Economics & Management: 'Our mission is to have a decisive and positive impact on how economic and business challenges are addressed. With a strong emphasis on quantitative methods, we produce pioneering research and educate women and men to become true leaders and entrepreneurs in their field.'
