International Office Management (Business & Languages)

Taught in English, 180 ECTS, 3 academic years, Campus Kantienberg


The International Office Management (Business & Languages) programme is unique in Belgium. In addition to the subjects that are specific to Business & Languages, we will immerse you in fields such as Intercultural Communication and Process and Lean Management. With this broad background, you can occupy a vital role in any (international) company!

The combination of languages, ict and internationally oriented courses provides me a window to the world. What a view!

First year

In the first year of the programme you get a variety of general business courses to make sure you are ready to kick-start your career as an international office manager. You start with a dive into Business Basics, ICT Toolkit and develop your knowledge in the second semester with Economics. You also immediately get the international component in courses like International Law and International Marketing. You start two foreign languages: at AUAC you can take French, German, Spanish and Chinese or choose a foreign language of your own choice at an external accredited institution. 

Second year

In the second year, you deepen your knowledge of your chosen Foreign Languages. Furthermore, you’ll continue to specialise in domains that are important for future international office managers: Process and lean management, Project Management or Global Citizenship, etc.

Third year

In the third year, you will have the opportunity to spend at least one term of study in a foreign country, at one of our worldwide partner institutions. We strongly recommend complementing this with an internship abroad in the second semester. There's a reason why you chose International Office Management after all, right? International students can choose between going abroad or continuing their foreign experience in Belgium.
