7 Career outlook An MIBEM degree opens the door to a variety of positions at international companies and organisations across a wide range of sectors, while your personal goals and prior education play a key part in determining your career path. Thanks to the MIBEM programme, I learned to look at companies from a different perspective, whereas previously, the focus was more on the mere technical character of the business world. The company s technical and financial aspects go hand in hand and should not be seen as two separate elements. Financial decisions have an impact on technical realisation and vice versa. This course certainly reinforced my engineering degree and it was certainly also a personal enrichment. (Jeroen Baes Project Engineer at Caterpillar (Master of Science in Industrial Sciences)) I recently joined Logica as a young potential for the Thaler programme. Thaler is an integrated software package covering all banking activities, from internal management processes to day-to-day operations. The programme targeted young graduates with an economic or IT background and the MIBEM programme provided me with vital economic knowledge and management skills. (Christian Mwizerwa Young potential at Logica (Bachelor of Science in IT)) After graduating from HUB I immediately started working as a consultant for a local economic development programme in Monduli, Tanzania. The MIBEM proved to be very practical and a real asset for supporting local farmers and entrepreneurs. It allowed me to specialise in the field of business development and consultancy for microcredit organisations. In fact, thanks to the MIBEM degree I get the chance to put my master s thesis into practice by stimulating the growth of promising African enterprises. (Bart Casier Consultant in Tanzania (Master in African Languages)) I am working at the European Court of Justice in Luxemburg as a legal translator. Even though the link with economics and management is less obvious, I still benefit from what I have learned in the MIBEM programme. Besides the vast and thorough economic background, I can use the experience of studying in a truly enriching international context. In fact, the great cultural diversity of MIBEM students and the classes being completely taught in English make the programme an excellent preparation for a career at the European institutions. (Thomas Scheir - Legal translator at the European Court of Justice (Master of Law))
