The BDA just had its first academic year. From September, students can opt for a postgraduate course called "Flagship Programme in Economic Diplomacy and International Business". This programme covers 1.5 years (3 semesters) and boasts exchange possibilities in the second semester to Washington DC and/or Shanghai.
The VUB cooperates with The Institute of World Politics (IWP) in Washington DC and the Shanghai University for International Business and Economics (SUIBE). Students willing to travel to the United States or China for this course will have to pay an extra enrolment fee at the hosting universities abroad.
