School Information

Created in 1903 by Ernest Solvay, the famous Belgian chemical industrial of his times, Solvay Brussels School is the faculty of Economics and Management of the Université libre de Bruxelles, one of the largest universities in Belgium.

Ever since, the school has built up a strong tradition of excellence and innovation in Business and Economics learning, fueled by deep connections within Brussels’ multinational entrepreneurial network. Today, Solvay Brussels School is indisputably the best known and most trusted business school in Belgium, by both students and employers.

Our alumni represent a network of more than 20.000 and are present in all sectors of activities in more than 65 countries worldwide. Each year the School, which is EQUIS- and AMBA-accredited, welcomes more than 4.200 students, participating in over 30 programs, including Bachelors, Masters, MBAs, Advanced Masters…

The location
As one of the biggest universities in Belgium with around 24,000 students every year, the ULB, of which Solvay Brussels School is part, offers a campus with numerous facilities and events accessible to all students: sports, library, medical services, restaurants, concerts, conferences and many other cultural events all through the year.

Triple capital of Europe, Belgium and the Flanders region, Brussels is host to both NATO and the EU headquarters, European base for a large number of international corporations (more than a 1.000 from the United States only), welcoming home for a population of some 300.000 expats, incredibly cosmopolitan… Yet Brussels remains a very relaxed and laid-back town which manages to keep its human scale.
