The BMI Learning Experience

As an independent and executive education-focused institution, we are able to react faster and offer extra attention in everything we do. We listen more attentively. We change constantly. We adapt better to business needs. We go the extra mile to select knowledge from the best international sources.

Expertly Crafted Executive Education

A diverse international faculty ‘cherry-picked’ from the world’s leading business schools helps us develop and deliver highly relevant programmes and keep them always up to date. That type of selectivity and attention to detail applies to everything we do.

The BMI Method

It all starts with BMI being a stand-alone management institute. We follow a practical executive approach. So our EMBA is continually refined and crafted, the ‘BMI way’, bringing real benefits for the participants.

  • We think flexible and react fast.
  • We advocate for creative forward-thinking.
  • We promote constant changes and adapt to the current business needs.

We go the extra mile and create a diverse environment for self-upgrade.

Full Personal Attention & Alumni Community

The attention we give each participant is one of the reasons for their high satisfaction. We admit only highly motivated executives with diverse experience, for mutual enrichment, then lead and support them on the journey to personal transformation. The result is an impressive international alumni network and community.

BMI participants also join the HEC Paris alumni network, ranked as the second most powerful business community globally by Financial Times. Consisting of 60,000 members, it opens up unrivaled networking opportunities through numerous joint events.

In addition, the participants of both tracks have various opportunities to collaborate: join common training sessions, participate in workshops, learning events, and other initiatives.

“At Louvain School of Management, we are deeply committed to integrating ethics, social
responsibility, and sustainability in all its activities. Our EMBA will open many new doors for you
and get you ready for the world of tomorrow.”
