International Opportunities for Faculty
In order to develop the concept of “internationalization at home” for our students, HEC strongly advocates the recruitment of international staff and/or Belgian staff holding an international degree or having international experience.
The diverse backgrounds of our academics and/or their international experience serve to enrich their teaching and research. We encourage all staff members to continue to enrich their international experience and profile in their particular field of expertise by various means:
- sabbatical year abroad,
- participation in International Executive Education,
- bridge programs
- collaborative degrees abroad.
These experiences enable the development of new institutional contacts. Academic staff are also encourages to hold visiting positions abroad.
International experience abroad promotes openness towards other cultures, extends and develops knowledge and encourages alternative ways of thinking. This is transmitted to students through teaching and discussions inside and outside the classroom. It also provides an excellent opportunity to experience the challenge of different pedagogical and/or working methods and to improve expertise in the field.
Faculty from internationally-renowned business schools contribute to courses through long and short-term visits, for example:
- Bowling Green State University (USA),
- Centre for Sustainability Management (DE),
- ESSEC Business School (FR),
- Universidad de Granada (ES),
- University of St. Gallen (CH)
