Program Details

Boost your career credentials while studying in beautiful Belgium! Dive into the local culture while expanding your business skills through on-site visits and lectures from individuals with expertise in a range of business sectors. You will learn about business practices in the Benelux and wider European context to expand your cultural, historical, and global perspectives.

You will be based in a 17th-century Irish Franciscan college in the Belgian city of Leuven, a historic city east of Brussels. Highlights of Leuven include the iconic town hall or Stadhuis with its late Gothic architecture and stunning turrets, the St. Pieterskerk Treasury of artwork, Stella Artois brewery, the Groot Begijnhof, a 13th century restored historic quarter, and Leuven’s Universiteitsbibliotheek and University Hall.

Lueven offers countless options for sightseeing, walking, cycling, markets, museums and abbeys, green spots, shopping, and dining.   

Imagine learning about the global diamond trade in Antwerp.  Imagine walking the cobbled streets of Bruges, marveling at its medieval buildings, and floating down its canals. Imagine interacting with innovators at cutting-edge companies in Mastricht and Cologne. Imagine learning about the role of the European Union in decision making. Imagine indulging in some of the finest chocolate in Europe and making your own chocolate creations. Then stop imagining and join Drs. Maureen Andrade and Eugene Seeley for business in Belgium!
