International Master in European Studies: come to Brussels to become EU Policy Advisor or EU Project Manager

 

The International Master in European Studies is organised jointly by the European Desk of the Belgian-Italian Chamber of Commerce and the Institute of European Studies of the Catholic University of Louvain to prepare students to work as EU Policy Advisor and Project Manager.

This intensive Master is organized in a 3-month schedule, enabling students to gain specific competencies and skills in a short period of time. Students will have the possibility to gain knowledge on the European Union institutional structure, functioning and policies, as well as get knowledge about EU funding methods and Project Cycle Management. The Master teaching methodology is a practice-oriented approach, which aims at transferring knowledge through a learning-by-doing process. A limited number of 30 students are admitted to the Master: they are from different countries and diverse educational backgrounds.

The Master’s programme is composed of three sections:

In the first section, the topic of the European construction is analysed from the historical, juridical and economic points of view. The main European policies, strategies and monetary agreements are here examined. This is the basis of the theoretical knowledge needed for Lobbying and Project Management.

The second section focuses on learning the mechanisms, tools and criteria for designing and managing successful EU-funded projects and tenders. The student learns through a learning-by-doing approach, with the support of case studies and interactive workshops. The lessons and the practical activities are held by professional EU Advisors, who have years of experience in planning, advising and providing technical assistance to SMEs, NGOs, think-tanks, public entities, and international organizations.

In the third section, several seminars at the European institutions are organized in order to meet EU officers and to have a direct contact with professionals. This section aims also to provide students with a wide vision of the different realities operating on the Brussels area in the European field.

The Job Link module is one of the master’s strengths: it is a good start for the entrance in the Brussels job market. It provides the support to students in further developing their career path by a seminar and the one-to-one meetings with a recruiter. The CV of the students will be included in a CV Book which is sent to various organizations and companies in Brussels. If students find an internship, the BICC will support them with the drafting of the contract and offering the trainee insurance

 

Deadline for the application: 17th August 2018

 

Duration: From 17th September to 13th December 2018

"BHMS helped me to find myself professionally and personally. With the theoretical part, I got to understand how interesting the hospitality sphere is, while thanks to the practical training, I got to realize that this industry truly suits me. After three years, I acquired my Bachelor of Arts in Hotel and Hospitality Management and on top of that, an unforgettable working experience of 18 months in a restaurant, a boutique hotel and in a big chain hotel.  After having a great foundation, I can surely say that I have a solid platform to start on  my career path." - these are usually the words of gratitude our students send us after completing their studies at BHMS. We are so proud of them.

Our students love to stay and study in BHMS. The safety and quality of life in Switzerland, its cultural and linguistic diversity as well as its location in the center of Europe have made the country attractive to those who are interested in launching a career in the global hotel and tourism industry.

Here some of our amazing graduates who want to share their personal experiences of studying in BHMS with you:

 

Carlotta Ceruti, Italy, completed BHMS/RGU MSc Degree

“Before enrolling I spent almost one year checking the beast option among different schools in Switzerland and I finally choose the BHMS in Luzern”, says Carlotta. “Today, almost one year after my graduation, I can still affirm to be sincerely satisfied with my choice. BHMS is, first of all, a multi-cultural school. Students come from various Countries and this gives the opportunity to learn different way of thinking, languages, cultures, religions etc. BHMS teaches its students, not only the regular subjects present in the study plan but also the way how to move in a professional environment. Moreover, the skilled teachers who present the classes have the ability to inspire and share a well-determined knowledge with the students. Finally, the demanding projects and exams that need to be assessed, lead students to do their best and exceed their own expectations. For all these reasons and much more, I am proud to have been a BHMS’s student.  After my graduation from the Msc program, I easily found a job as Receptionist in Switzerland. Despite my interest in this Country, I decided to temporarily move in Gran Canary where I am currently working as Assistant in the Sales department. It is unnecessary to say that the BHMS School gave me the opportunity to obtain the knowledge that nowadays is required in the Business reality”.

 

Bernice Voo completed the BHMS/CityU MBA Degree in 2013 and presently works as a Project Manager at SWISSCARE, Bern, Switzerland. SWISSCARE is a global insurance solutions for expatriates, travelers and students. «My study years at BHMS has been unique and full of exposure», says Bernice. «Being part of multi-cultural student body, I had to learn and adapt to different traits and habits. And this I think is my surviving secret in a Swiss multinational company like SWISSCARE.»

 

Apekshit Shah completed the BHMS/CityU MBA Degree in 2014 and presently works as a Restaurant Manager at the Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi. «My previous experience across Europe, Asia, and North America is accelerating my career development in the Middle East», says Apekshit. «This is combined with the right education at BHMS, self-motivation, passion and hard work.»

 

Luca Paradisi completed BHMS/Culinary Arts

"My experience in BHMS was great: the structure of the study plan fits perfectly with my way of studying. The theoretical lessons, having four weeks of lessons and one of exams, in my opinion, helped the studying process because it didn’t let cumulate all the theory helping to focalize on any point of the program. The practical lessons were structured very well, the students weren’t to many so it was easy to follow the lesson and the teacher was always available to answer at the questions. My internship experience was amazing because I was in a 5 star hotel with two young but very well prepared chefs, both with a long experience in Michelin star restaurants, I learned a lot because even if I was a student at the first experience they let me work, after a couple of months, during the service at the garde manger and than at the pasta section. During the last six months I learned a lot: about how to live in the kitchen and how to cook."
