United Business Institutes (UBI) was established on April 4th, 1992 as a not-for-profit establishment of higher education. UBI was co-founded by Mr Lucien van Dievoet and Mr Francois d’Anethan who together decided to work on starting an English-language Business School that would combine a truly international dimension with a high-quality business curriculum. The quality assurance mechanisms of British universities have always been seen as the standard for higher education and therefore the decision for a British validation was made and the UBI programmes have been validated by British Universities since 1998.
Since taking its first students in October 1992, UBI has achieved a reputation for the high quality of its teaching programmes. Situated in Brussels and Luxembourg, UBI offers the opportunity to study in English in a non-English speaking country and allows students to benefit from an international, intercultural and dynamic environment.
This successful recipe was extended to opening new campuses. UBI – Luxembourg was opened in 2013 to operate a campus in Wiltz, Luxembourg. UBI – China was opened in 2018 in Shanghai (China).
UBI’s classrooms have been meticulously crafted to provide the broadest international experience to the students. Having students and alumni from over 50 countries in the world, we consider diversity in our classrooms as our competitive advantage. While the program is designed to challenge you intellectually and personally and requires self-discipline and dedication, it is at the same time rewarding and enables you to acquire the skills, knowledge and attitudes that will enable you to navigate easily in a multicultural environment.
UBI has two campuses - one in Brussels and one in Luxembourg. The Bachelor (Hons.) in Business Studies and the Master’s in Business Administration programs are taught in English and are validated by Middlesex University London and students are awarded a Middlesex University London degree upon successful completion.
