BA in Global Business and Entrepreneurship

Vesalius College is closely monitoring the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our community. Please note that since the start of the lockdown in March, Vesalius College lectures have taken place online for all programmes.
In the light of the current situation, we decided to move our Bachelor programmes online for the entire first semester of the upcoming 2020-21 academic year, until January 2021. For our Master programmes, a decision is still pending. We have taken this measure to accommodate prospective BA students who may be unable to travel to Belgium or get a travel visa in time. If allowed, VeCo will complement this measure by a higher number of events, such as guest lectures, that could then be attended either physically or online, to ensure students based in Belgium are still offered opportunities to meet each other, and to benefit from the College’s unique location in Brussels.
We realise that teaching is one of Vesalius’s great strengths and that this decision may be inconvenient to many of you, but we must recognise that Covid-19 presents a very serious threat to the health and well-being of all.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at  vesalius.college.admissions@vub.be
