An American University in the Heart of Europe
In 1972, Boston University became the first major American university to offer graduate business management degrees in Europe. Since then, Boston University in Brussels has continued to prepare students for the challenges of a multicultural marketplace, providing programs that build professionalism, confidence, and skills that can be applied directly to the workplace.
We now have over 1,200 alumni from our campus in Brussels, each of whom gained a superb education by taking advantage of the flexibility and convenience unique to our degree, certificate, and diploma programs.
And of course, they benefited from the wealth of resources available to them throughout Brussels. Located in what's been named the capital of Europe, Boston University in Brussels is at the center of European leadership and decision–making. As home to the European Union (EU), the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), and hundreds of multinational corporations and international organizations, Brussels is the ideal location for the student wishing to pursue degree, certificate, or diploma programs in leadership, international relations, or business.
Students of Boston University have the best of both worlds—the opportunity to obtain a leadership or international relations, graduate degree from a preeminent American university, while living and studying in the heart of Europe.
Our mission is to provide a highly practical education that accommodates both the interests and professional objectives of each student. Our students enjoy opportunities for part-time learning, evening study, and collaboration with some of the world's best business minds—all as they explore the topics most relevant to their individual goals.
