About 
 
HEC Management School – University of Liège (HEC Liège) is a business school of international stature located at the heart of a fully-fledged university, Liège University (ULg), which was established in 1817. HEC Liège was created by business enterprises to fill the need for training in times when the industry was booming. Today, HEC Liège offers courses under the bachelor’s programs of management, business engineering, and economics.

Liège is a major city and municipality of Belgium, located in central Europe. Liège is a great location for those who love to travel and experience European culture first-hand, as it is located a mere hour away from Brussels, 3 hours from Amsterdam, and 2.5 hours from Paris. The metropolitan area of Liège boasts a population of over 700,000 people. One of the original seven collegiate churches, Liège Cathedral (or Saint Paul’s Cathedral), is located in Liège and contains a treasury as well as Saint Lambert’s tomb. The church of Saint James is remarked as one of the most beautiful churches in all of Liège, and was built in a Flamboyant-Gothic style, and was founded in 1016.
Liège is also home to the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MAMAC), which was founded in 1980 and contains the works of contemporary, surrealist, and impressionist artists such as Picasso, Gauguin, Monet, Pissarro, and Tàpies. The Batte Market, an outdoor market that is highly popular among the locals, happens every Sunday along the Meuse River that runs through the city.

Thoughts from a Former Exchange Student

"I decided to study abroad as a means of diversifying my professional skills, not to mention my career opportunities. Studying abroad is one of the best ways to broaden one's awareness of the complex issues surrounding this new international/global era in which we live. It helped me perfect my language skills and gain knowledge of the political, social, and economic issues the world faces today. Furthermore, I believe the personal experiences I gained will help me to be a better leader to welcome challenges, and to challenge the status quo."
