We focus on competence-oriented education. These competences include specific skills and attitudes, in addition to knowledge and insight.
The Faculty of Business and Economics has AACSB and EPAS accreditations, both hallmarks for excellence in business education. And: The Financial Times ranked the University of Antwerp in the best Masters in Management ranking, where it received first place in terms of 'value for money'.
