International Management Week

This event will be run as a virtual interdisciplinary week due to the current crisis. It will be replaced by the Virtual Innovation Week.

The International Management Week brings together Office Management students from all over Europe. In multicultural teams, these students will be challenged to use their competences to solve a challenging HR case. All participating teams will consist of both Belgian and other European students, so the language of communication for this international week is English.

Social and cultural activities are organised to allow participants to meet their fellow students from other countries also informally.

Do you know how to manage multicultural teams?

How do you make your team implement your company’s mission and vision? When do your employees need extra coaching? What makes managing culturally diverse teams challenging? More and more graduates are working in an international business environment, so answers to these questions prove to be more relevant than ever. Therefore, this International Management Week aims to provide students with all tools necessary to cope with these situations.

During this international week, you will have to solve an interesting case study in the field of career management. To complete this task, you will have to draw upon your knowledge of several disciplines, but you will also be assisted by a professional HR manager. At the end of this week, directors from several prominent companies will answer your questions about HR topics at a round-table conference.

This International Management Week is developed as a competition. The best team will receive an award at the end of the week. Team spirit, commitment, enthusiasm and initiative are decisive factors in this competition.
