A management career with a
focus on technology, computing
or financial management!

Students of the Master's degree in Business Engineering will acquire subject knowledge in the fields of technology, computing or finance.

There is also opportunity to develop specialised subject knowledge thanks to a wide range of options.

To develop the Project Management skills specific to business engineers, students will manage a real-life company project paired with their thesis as a means of connecting theoretical knowledge within the field reality.

International mobility

ICHEC considers international exposure to be one of its academic cornerstones and encourages students to give their learning journey an international dimension, particularly in the second year of their master's degree:


  • Semester 1: follow your specialisation course in one of our partner universities abroad.
  • Semester 2: conduct your internship and final thesis abroad.


ICHEC-ESAN Double Degree

ICHEC offers students on the Business Engineering course a double degree in partnership with the prestigious Peruvian university, ESAN Graduate School of Business. This programme lasts two years and takes place partly in Brussels and partly in Lima. In addition to classes, it also includes a thesis element and an internship.


What prospects does this programme offer?

As engineers, students are prepared for Management roles in which they are able to design and implement innovative management solutions, which incorporate technological, digital or quantitative aspects.

This Master's programme, true to ICHEC's mission, trains Managers:

  • that possess general subject knowledge broadened by quantitative methods and scientific and technical methods
  • that have operational skills, that is to say, able to act practically, on their own or as part of a team, to design and implement solutions incorporating technological aspects.
  • that are responsible for their own future and that of the company
  • that have an international outlook, mindful of complexity and maintaining a critical mindset
  • that are able to communicate orally and in writing in several languages
