About HEC Liège

HEC Liège is the Management School of the University of Liège (ULiège). Located at the heart of Europe and at the crossing of the major axes of the Euregio, ULiège, as a comprehensive university, is one of the major employers in and around Liège. Its several sites generate over 5,500 direct jobs, i.e. 3,600 lecturers and researchers plus approximately 2,000 management, administrative and technical staff members who altogether meet the day-to-day needs of the institution while addressing the challenges of today's fast-evolving world.

ULiège prides itself on a genuine international dimension. The university is an active partner of a network of over 900 universities promoting the exchange of students, researchers and skills. As one of its faculties, HEC Liège is one of the leading Belgian management schools hosting graduate and postgraduate study programmes. The School counts 110 full-time faculty members and researchers and over 3,200 students, and promotes an empowering pedagogy leading students to play a proactive part in their education. The School's international vision takes a variety of forms: multiple research activities in management and economics, numerous partnerships with worldwide companies and universities, an OpenBordersMBA, an International MBA (Morocco) several programmes in Asia, and growing internationalization of its programmes and faculty. In addition to this, its Executive School's offer of international and multilingual training programmes for companies and managers, makes HEC Liège an important player on the Belgian Executive Education market.

HEC Liège's commitment to and ongoing investment in quality improvement has been recognized through the international Accreditations AACSB and EQUIS (delivered by EFMD), for the excellence of its programmes, Faculty, student support, research, involvement within its economic context, Alumni network (15,500 worldwide) and overall organization. To date, HEC Liège is the single full management school in Belgium (from Bachelor to PhD) holding this double accreditation. The School, as well, is a member of the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles (French).

Working at HEC Liège means being part of a Business School with a truly European identity. Lying at the heart of a metropolis − easily accessible by air and rail, within an hour's drive from Brussels and four from Paris, Frankfurt and London, the School shares in the ardent city's bustling economic and cultural institutions. For being affiliated to several international research and teaching networks connecting with more than 150 partner universities, it naturally encourages its lecturers and researchers to continually develop their expertise internationally.

HEC Liège offers a dynamic and entrepreneurial research and teaching environment. Each professor conducts his or her research program independently. Numerous sources of funding (internal and external) exist and give (assistant) professors the opportunity to create their own research team and to supervise doctoral students as soon as they join HEC Liège. Each professor is also responsible for the content and methodology of his or her teaching. The time allocation between the various activities is 40% for research, 40% for teaching and 20% for community service. In the early years of the appointment, the 20% of service is limited, which gives the professor the opportunity to further develop his or her research and teaching program.

HEC Liège emphasizes the human dimension of its work environment, the regional anchoring of its community service missions, the managerial relevance of its teaching and its applied research projects, let alone its fruitful inter-faculty partnerships.

HEC Liège upholds respect, tolerance, congeniality, diversity and social responsibility. It is committed to the well-being of its members and to environmental protection.

Last but not least, HEC Liège's modern and expanding campus within a city renowned for its friendliness and hospitality makes it a great place to live and work. Here are some of its assets: an excellent and cost-friendly real estate market, high quality schools offering almost free education in the School's immediate vicinity, well-developed public transport, abundant sports and leisure facilities. Not to forget Liège's excellent cultural life for being home to the Royal Opera of Wallonia, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and a variety of renowned museums, theatres etc., or its country's enviable standard of living and development.
