languages

When they graduate, all students of HEC Liege will be proficient in at least two foreign languages:

  • English: intensive course in business English as part of the Bachelor’s degree program (7 credits, 3 hours per week).  In the Master’s degree program, there are no longer any English lessons, but all courses are taught in English
  • A second foreign language is taught from the 1st year of the Bachelor’s degree program until the 2nd year of the Master’s degree program.

We offer two levels of study in German, Spanish and Italian:

  • the standard level: beginners’ course, (no prior knowledge required) 
  • the advanced level for students who have already studied the language during   their secondary education. 

For Dutch, we offer only an advanced course.  However, very determined beginners can catch up by following 30 hours of extra courses in the 1st stage of the Bachelor’s degree course. 

During the Master’s degree program, students may also start a third language (Dutch, German or Spanish).

Furthermore, if you are interested in a multilingual study program combining French and German, we can offer you a French-German Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Management which includes a double degree, one from HEC and one from the University of Hohenheim in Germany!

It’s worth knowing that the number of credits allocated to language courses in the Bachelor’s degree program is the highest in the whole of French speaking Belgium.
