Master of Business Engineering

A business engineer is an interdisciplinary manager who guides companies from a quantitative and managerial point of view. To this end, managerial and analytical skills are combined with a profound understanding of how business and (technological) innovation processes work. This integration of disciplines makes business engineers able to shape the future of companies and organisations.

About the programme

A business engineer is trained for analyzing and solving business problems from a quantitative and managerial point of view. The programme belongs to the domain of business economics and is management oriented: students learn how companies function, how business processes should be designed and how business activities can be optimally organised. The managerial focus is combined with strong analytical skills and a profound understanding of how business and (technological) innovation processes work. This integration of disciplines is of high relevance to production environments as well as to service companies (e.g. consultancy or ICT).

Career perspectives

Graduates of the Master of Science in Business Engineering mostly take up managerial and/or research positions in business, national and international institutions, and at universities. Business engineers usually start their careers in technical expert functions within interdisciplinary management teams. They are typically hired to optimize production processes and to develop quantitative models in financial institutions, or to market technological innovations. They are also able to take up more traditional management tasks, armed with the ability to support key decisions using quantitative analyses. Business engineers quickly move up to executive functions in various management domains in companies and organisations. Given the variety of skills acquired, they are highly sought after by a wide range of companies – from start-ups and small firms to multinational corporations – for various positions in Belgium and abroad.
