This program is taught in FRENCH.
The master’s degree programme in management, representing 120 credits, provides a solid specialist training in management, enabling effective integration into the world of work.
Profile of the programme
The master’s in management offers graduates management training based on traditional courses (finance, marketing, accounts, human resources, law, etc.) but also on specific disciplines that are in high demand on the market, such as the environment, logistics, auditing, entrepreneurship, etc.
The curriculum includes:
- A first year of 60 credits distributed across a common core (human resources management, statistical and econometric methods in management, financial management, advanced marketing, advanced microeconomics, tax and business law and one of four major options: finance, marketing, auditing and international management).
- A second year of 60 credits built around a common core of 40 credits (thesis, internship, strategic management) and a deepening of the major option chosen in the first year of the master’s.
Languages are naturally part of the curriculum, and follow the student through to graduation. They are taught in specific language lessons and are used for communication in seminars in English, Dutch or Spanish.
The curricula offered by the Warocqué School of Business and Economics have been ISO-certified since 2003. This certification, which is identical to that used in the professional world, involves the various stakeholders in a process leading to continuous improvement in the quality of the education that is provided. This quality approach, with the student at its heart, incorporates support tools such as tutoring, mentoring and remediation, which allow for easier integration into the academic world and improve students’ success rates. Fully involved in the system, the students are regularly consulted in the quest for still higher levels of quality (satisfaction surveys, consultation on exam schedules, academic support, etc.). This approach, unique in higher education in the French Community, has been rewarded more than once with the “Walloon Quality Prize” (2007 and 2009).
