Our alumni have described our programmes as follows: ‘…sophisticated programme’ … ‘outstanding teaching’ ‘…a unique value proposition in comparison to other universities’ … ‘high calibre, experienced lecturers combined with the small group teaching method’… ‘a valuable choice for a solid future in Diplomacy and International Trade’…’I can only highly recommend this programme’.

Brussels Diplomatic Academy education and training is designed to ensure that graduates are prepared for immediate entry into employment, or continued career progression. Our specialised curricula in economic diplomacy and international business are developed by those who have worked in these fields, in ongoing consultation with employers and representative organisations, ensuring that BDA programmes remain up-to-date and relevant.

Taught by a mixture of academics and practitioners, in the evenings and at weekends, our courses are accessible to professionals and full-time students alike. Our flexible timeframe makes it possible to combine work and study over a period suited to individual needs.

We know what employers want, and we know what a University can provide, we have combined that expertise to provide the programmes and flexibility that today’s students expect.

Email cailin.mackenzie@vub.be if you have questions about the programme or your application.

Please note our semester starts on the 1st of September!

 

The BDA provides education and training for those embarking on their path to a career in diplomacy or international business, as well as those already on their professional journey wishing to enhance their knowledge and skills.

We consider it essential that our education and training prepare people for the labour market, or improve their existing career opportunities, by teaching subjects that matter in the workplace. This does not mean a reduction in academic quality, nor a rejection of research, it means providing content and delivery that ensure people can immediately make use of what they have learnt, and can understand the relevance of academic subjects to their jobs.

By providing our postgraduate courses in the evenings and on weekends, we make sure that they are accessible to those working full-time. And by consulting regularly with bodies such as the Federal Public Service of Foreign Affairs, and various chambers of commerce, we ensure that our courses are relevant and up-to date.

The range and variety of courses and formats on offer guarantee that whatever your education and training needs, they can be met by the BDA.
