Brussels is a truly magnificent city, particularly for students studying business and economics. It's unique significance in European business, politics and legislation make it both location of strong professional and educational appeal.
Bursting with opportunities for students to develop their understanding of the many elements of business and economics, students can expect to experience inspirational insights into both small and large scale businesses throughout the duration of their trip. With eye-opening visits to places such as the European Parliament, the European Commission and Belgium's national bank students can experience unique, large scale operations which shape many elements of their lives back in the UK.
Despite its popularity with political and financial figures and even Eurocrats, the city maintains its Belgian identity and cosy atmosphere reminiscent of other areas of the country. Brussels perfectly blends it's Belgian heritage with modern innovation, offering historic sights, globally renowned art and fascinating architecture and ample opportunities to explore the world of business and economics.
